Wendy McEwan, Shelter Scotland Aberdeen shop manager, said: “We’re really grateful to John Lewis in Aberdeen for their tremendous support.

“Thanks to the takeover I’m able to give my hard-working volunteers a couple of days off.

“It’s only because of our volunteers, stock donors and customers that we are able to bring in the funds which allow Shelter Scotland to keep going, ensuring no one has to face homelessness and bad housing alone,” she added.
