A BRACKNELL church has branched out into its first social enterprise by opening a new shop in the town centre.
K4 Kerith For The Community is selling good quality clothing, jewellery, toys and household goods, all with the aim of supporting a number of charities that Kerith backs, including Bracknell Foodbank, Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Bracknell, Kerith Konnections which provides support for disabled children and their families, Crisis Intervention and Kerith Job Club.The store was opened by the Bracknell Forest Borough Mayor, Cllr Jennie McCracken, on Thursday, July 26.“The church has long been engaged in offering projects open to the wider Bracknell Forest Borough community,” says a spokesperson for the church. “Projects need money and social enterprises are an increasingly popular way to trade in order to make improvements in the lives of all its citizens and to give everyone a hope and a future. “K4 will be a place where we would continue with the Kerith ethos – of serving people well.”Kerith will welcome donations during its opening hours – Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm. “Your contribution will make a difference in the lives of the people who live in Bracknell and the surrounding area,” the spokesperson added. “The K4 management team would like to thank Bracknell Regeneration Partnership forall of their help in helping us find a good location in the town centre for the position of the shop.”
