Singer Cheryl Baker opens Demelza shop in Tonbridge

There was Bucks Fizz, balloons and bunting when singer Cheryl Baker opened a new Demelza Hospice Care for Children shop in Tonbridge High Street.

Cheryl cut a ribbon to officially open the new store, as well as donating skirts and jackets to the shop and serving a customer. She also did a little shopping herself while there, buying some new black and being spotty shoes and some red and white spotty Demelza cups.

Demelza now has 26 shops across Kent, South East London and East Sussex.

Also at the opening was Demelza child Bethany Spendlove, 15 and her dad Stephen, who live at Ightham, Sevenoaks, Demelza Trustees and Directors and volunteers.

Guests enjoyed Bucks Fizz, cakes and photos with Cheryl, as well as a bit of bargain hunting for themselves and their homes.

The shop is at 48 Tonbridge High Street for those who would like to bag some bargains of their own. Donations can now be taken to the shop and the shop is also on the look out for more volunteers.
