A pop-up shop will light up the former Lighting Direct shop next week.

The Women’s Institute is raising money for its medical research fund. This time the money will go towards Glaucoma, the leading cause of preventable blindness in New Zealand, which affects 10 percent of the population over the age of 70.

Women’s Institute Poverty Bay-Wairoa president Alison Crawford said there would be lots of bargains at the three-day shop.

There will be home knitting, perfect for these cold months, baking, bedding, raffles and a white elephant stall.

The pop-up shop will be open from Tuesday to Thursday next week from 9.30am to 2.30pm next to Bramwells Pharmacy in Gladstone Road.
