A SPECIALIST book and music shop is opening its doors and will be raising cash for a good cause.

The new Oxfam charity shop will be at number 232 High Street, Berkhamsted, on the site formerly owned by Wine Rack.

It will be opened to the public by Radio Four actor and writer Christopher Douglas in a special event on Saturday at 1pm.

Mr Douglas co-writes the radio sitcom Ed Reardon’s Week and plays the title character Ed Reardon. It tells the story of a grumpy 50-something writer, struggling to make a living.

Jane Hockings, manager for Oxfam’s other store at 202 High Street, will takeover control of the new shop too.

She said number 202 will have a better range of items too and will be closed for a few days this month for reorganisation.

She said: “We are excited by this new challenge and look forward to offering our supporters even better choice and value.”

The new store is open 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sundays.
