Newlife, which has a branch in Market Drayton, began selling on Ebay some years ago and launched on Depop last month, but now in its 30th year it has launched newlifeonline.

The new online marketplace gives the brand the chance to recoup some of the £3 million losses as a result of all the stores being closed in line with Government restrictions during lockdown.

Funds are usually raised for Newlife’s charity services by working with over 300 leading retailers and manufacturers across the UK and Europe who donate items that would otherwise be destined for landfill.

Harjinder Samra, deputy commercial director at Newlife, said: “The launch of Newlife Online is absolutely fantastic news for shoppers across the UK who have the chance to bag themselves some amazing bargains, from designer and high street to those all-important basics for all the latest trends.

"It also means that Newlife can continue to support the disabled children and their families who urgently need our help, especially right now as the pandemic continues.”
