Continue on with A Charity Shop Adventure! 😃

Are you ready to continue with our Charity Shop Adventure, adventurer? 😀 We have just released Part Two of our latest Armchair Adventures story and we can’t wait for you to listen!

In Part One of A Charity Shop Adventure, we met our competition winner Denise. She won the chance to share her very own Armchair Adventure with all you adventurers, isn’t that cool?

She took us on an Armchair Adventure to Willow Wood Charity Shop (where she works!) to help Connie discover the joy of preloved things using a very special magic mirror to reveal an item’s former life. Connie doesn’t think she can give up the things she’s loved and all the memories attached though. They’re all very special to her!

When we join Connie and the gang in Part Two, she’s still not sure about donating her childhood toys. Luckily the gang have brought lots of things to donate with them, and the magic mirror has another trick up its sleeve…

“Connie:          Great. What did you guys bring?


Kenny:             I have a six-speaker sound system. It doesn’t work with my telly, but it might be useful to somebody else. The sound is great, it surrounds you. Like being in a cinema.


Carla:               Why don’t you hold it up in front of the magic mirror Kenny?


Connie:            Woah, hang on. Where’s the mirror taken us to now?


Linda:              We already know who this belonged to!


Connie:            Have we gone forward in time?


Christine:         Wow! I think we have!


Denise:            Extraordinary. This is the first time this has happened.


Connie:            Let’s see who gets your speakers, Kenny!”

That’s right, the magic mirror can show you an item’s future home! Could this be the thing that helps Connie let go of things she’s outgrown? Listen to A Charity Shop Adventure – Part Two and find out 😊
