Places To Visit In Manchester | Goodstock by vInspired

vInspired is an independent charity that provides young people with opportunities to do great things they care about, through volunteering and social action. On Friday 30th January, Manchester saw the opening of vInspired's very first charity shop, Goodstock. I took a trip down to check it out.

From first sight, it was pretty obvious that this isn't your ordinary charity shop. The shop was opened as research showed most charity shops don’t cater for younger generations and you can see the amount of work they've put into it to really attract a younger crowd. With three floors to play with, we can't wait to see this shop grow.

It's fair to say that Goodstock is like a cross between a cool vintage shop and a charity shop, with fashion and charity blending perfectly. Events, gigs and workshops will take place at the shop too, to engage young people, over the coming year.

I came away with a dress on my first visit and no doubt could have found more items if I'd had the time! So, pop down and let us know what you think!
