Visitors can enjoy homemade cakes and a beverage in the centre’s lovely shady garden or indoors, meet up and catch up with friends and pick up the free newspapers.
There will also be a chance to browse through Lux Mundi’s preloved clothing for those essential additions to your wardrobe, kitchen and household items, bedding, curtains and much more.
“We are ready to start receiving donations and follow the necessary disinfection procedures to place them in ‘Our shop’. We would appreciate it if you could bring them to us in bags that you do not need, during the normal opening hours of 11am to 1pm,” said press officer, Patricia Rothwell.
The centre will be closed for the public holidays of Constitution day and the Immaculate Conception on December 7 and 8.
And on Friday, December 11, The British Consulate International Organisation for Migration is visiting the Lux Mundi Centre to give free advice about residencia, due to the approaching deadline of December 31.
