Shekinah is a charity organisation that supports some of the most vulnerable people in society, that need education, homes, food, and care. Shekinah does a lot for Plymouth and we’d like to show them our respect and gratitude.
Please message WonderZoo if you’d like to donate any money to Shekinah.
The event will be livestreamed on Facebook and Zoom. We’ll provide soft drinks and cake. And there’ll be a raffle and quiz. This is a fantastic opportunity to highlight the fantastic work that Shekinah do, so please come along and donate.
The shop itself is a unique charity shop stocking vintage, retro, designer labels and a huge array of lovely and interesting items.
