Stonepillow staff showed guests, including Pat Arculus, chairman of West Sussex County Council, and Peter Budge, the Mayor of Chichester, round the retro and vintage charity shop, which includes a workshop and a training suite on the upper floor.

A spokesman for the homeless charity said: “We were delighted to host Bognor Mayor Pat Dillon, who officially opened Stonepillow’s second social enterprise.

“Stonepillow Revive is designed to raise vital funds to support local homeless people, while at the same time offering training and work-based opportunities to empower not only our clients but those who come from vulnerable backgrounds or are having trouble finding work.”

The store is now open for business in Bognor’s high street and people can come and browse in store or call 01243 214561 to arrange collection of furniture and donations.
