Karried Away - Op Shoppe
The Karried Away Op Shoppe was formally established on the 29th of November 2008 and is
located within the CWA Hall on North Street in Northcliffe. The current building, was offered
to the Northcliffe family & Community Centre, and on the 13th of June 2005, Maja Plante
formally accepted this offer.
From 2005 until 2008 the building was used for a number of purposes including meditation, still
drawing and bellydance amougst other things. In 2008 the shop was transformed into an Op
Shop with the name "The Karried Away Op Shoppe" being applied in August 2011. At present
the shop runs two days a week, and receives customers from all over the South West.
The shop has been lovingly staffed by a large number of volunteers over the years , who have
selflessly donated their time and effort to ensuring the success of the Shop.
In keeping with the strong tradition of looking after our volunteers, all staff who give of
their time after looked after by the Centre through the provision of clothing vouchers,
free high speed internet access as well as tea and coffee while at the centre.
We believe that dedicated volunteers help to form the corner stone of a community, and
encapsulate the ethos of the Northcliffe Family & Community Centre,
where people are our most precious resource.
