UK’s first charity sports shop opens for business

The UK’s first charity sports shop has opened in East Sussex.

Brighton & Hove Albion FC’s charitable arm, Albion in the Community, has opened Sports Dreams, which sells good quality second-hand sports clothing and equipment.

Located in Hove, the shop was officially opened by celebrity Brighton residents Des Lynam and Norman Cook (pictured), who both contributed sports goods to the shop’s selection.

Norman Cook, aka Fat Boy Slim, has donated a selection of his football shirts to Sports Dreams, including the national shirts of Italy, Japan, Brazil, and South Africa.

Also on display is a Real Madrid shirt signed by the legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo.

“Sports Dreams is a brand new concept in charity shops,” says Dick Knight, chairman of Albion in the Community.

“It’s the first of its kind and will enable people to access a range of brilliant, affordable sports gear.

“We will also be showcasing our extensive community work, providing a focal point for people to find out more about our education, health and sports courses.”
