OSA Recruitment has decided to open up their recently acquired and currently unused shop at 22 Smith Street, St Peter Port for use as a pop-up charity shop for the four weeks leading up to Christmas.

Belinda Windsor, Recruitment Manager, said “we are offering four Guernsey charities or community groups the chance to occupy The OSA Charity Pop Up Shop for one week each.”

“We want Guernsey Charities to fill-in an application form and tell us what they’d use the space for. We’d like the shop to be lively and inviting so we’re looking for creative ideas, as well as those charities/groups that may have things to sell.”

The deadline for applications from those wishing to be considered for this opportunity is 5 November 2012.

Once applications are received they will be shortlisted by a panel of judges.

OSA Recruitment would then like Islanders to help choose the four winning charities.

Further information on how the choices can be made will be released when the shortlist is announced on 7 November 2012.

Sophie Gregson, Director, OSA Recruitment, said “we hope that The OSA Charity Pop Up Shop will not only provide a fantastic addition to the High Street in the run up to Christmas, but we also hope that other landlords with empty shops may be inspired to offer their properties to house similar initiatives in the future.”

OSA Recruitment has always been heavily involved with the community, offering service provision, financial help and sponsorship to charitable organisations where possible.
