A NEW charity shop which is raising money for Burton's animal shelter has officially opened.

The RSPCA shop has opened in the former New Look store, in High Street, Swadlincote, and will donate all of its profits straight to the rescue centre, in Hillfield Lane, Stretton.

It was officially opened by South Derbyshire District Council chairman Councillor Pat Murray along with a few furry friends.

Murrae Blair-Park, regional RSPCA branch manager, said the shop's opening also marked the 25th anniversary of the rescue centre which costs £4,700 a week to run.

He said: "As the RSPCA Burton and District branch, we don't receive any funding from the RSPCA so any money we raise we must get ourselves.

"It costs £4,700 a week to run the shelter so all proceeds will be donated to it."
