Hillsborough pop up shop

HillsboroughMargaret Aspinal, whose 18 year old son died in the Hillsborough disaster, has opened a store to raise funds for the victims’ families. The shop is open in Liverpool’s St John’s Shopping Centre and all proceeds will benefit The Hillsborough Family Support Group, which is run by Mrs Aspinal. Margaret said: “In recent months we have been overwhelmed by the power of the people of Liverpool, who have demanded their voices be heard. So many people have asked if we have a shop, because we only used to sell from our website. Having a full size store allows the extra space we needed to offer other things that shoppers have asked for, and we expect the ‘Justice for the 96’ t-shirts to be very popular.” The unit for the pop-up shop has been provided free of charge by St John’s. Ian Ward, Centre Director at St John’s, said: “What happened at Hillsborough will be forever ingrained in the minds of people in this city. We welcome the pop up shop to the centre and wish it every success in raising funds for the families affected.”
