‘FULL Stop’ is a newly opened bookshop and coffee dock which will be officially launched on February 14, above the 321 Down Syndrome Charity Shop on High Street.

It’s part of the expansion of Down Syndrome Kerry’s services and there’s a team of about 18 volunteers who are excited about the opening and very proud of the new space.

The 321 Down Syndrome Charity Shop at High Street is now open over a year and a half. They sell used items at affordable prices and are always looking for donations of good quality stock.

The purpose of the shop is to make a profit to help provide better services and facilities for its members.

They currently have five adults with Down Syndrome and a number of adults with additional needs working in the shop, to gain training and valuable work experience.

All are welcome to attend next Tuesday, and free refreshments will be provided from 10am to 12pm. For more information, visit the website here.
