Lifeline Darling Downs is set to celebrate National Op Shop Week in October with a VIP Op Bus Shop Tour. National Op Shop Week is an annual event being held this year from September 30th – October 6th.
Guests will be able to sit back and relax as they visit four Lifeline Darling Downs Op Shops stopping for lunch at the City Golf Club. There will also be special VIP exclusive discounts on the day. The organisation has partnered with the Toowoomba Sightseeing bus so guests will have the pleasure of being driven around the city in the iconic bus.
Opportunity shops or ‘Op’ shops as they are more commonly known are more than an opportunity to bag a bargain they are a retail space where goods are repurposed and given a new lease of life.
“We are really looking forward to bringing this event to Toowoomba. Our shops are real treasure troves with a very special purpose as all proceeds from sales go towards funding our suicide prevention and crisis support services. It is thanks the support of our community that we continue to receive donations.
By purchasing goods at our Lifeline Shops customers helping us to ensure we can continue to provide high quality professional services at no cost to those most in need in our community. ”, Lifeline Darling Downs, CEO, Derek Tuffield OAM said.
The bus tour is being held on Wednesday 3rd October. Tickets are $45 and are on sale now. Seats are limited so people are being urged to book early.
