The charity shop, on Old York Road, Wandsworth, was designed using reclaimed and sustainable materials, and inspired by Wandsworth’s rich industrial history, using hot air balloons as a central theme.

She said: "I am so excited to be in Wandsworth - there is a brilliant community already and I want local artists, craftspeople, designers, cake bakers and shoppers to come and be a part of Living & Giving, after all, it’s a space for you, the local community."
