WDP Capital Card Shop Hackney
The Hackney Capital Card Shop is Back!
On the 25th October 2017, the Capital Card Shop opened its doors again! Shoppers came in to browse the wares between 2-4pm, in the Methodist Church on Mare street, where over 450 points were spent by Capital Card users while the shop was open. The feedback from the shop was great, with Capital Card Shoppers stating:
“Earning points really encourages people to do more than just turn up for their keywork.’’
“I think it’s brilliant!”
The Capital Card is a fantastic opportunity for Service Users to spend their earned points on clothing, bags, shoes, kid’s clothes, toys, books and other necessities. We have a large selection of clothes; from plain t-shirts to smart dresses up for grabs! As well as grabbing some new threads, it’s also a great chance to socialise and get to know other Service Users, have a cup of tea or coffee, as well as talk with peer mentors and learn more about the other places to spend your points.
“It’s so great to be able to do stuff in the community and keep busy!” – DJ HRS Service User
The next Capital Card Shop will be in a month, so keep an eye out for dates and location. You’ll find this on our website, twitter feed and posters around the services!
