Explaining the government’s economic response to the pandemic, Mr Sunak said: “We went big, we went early, but there is more to come and there will be more to come in the Budget. But there is a challenge (in the public finances) and I want to level with people about the challenge.”
However, charity shops are better prepared this time, Mr Osterley said. Take for example Stockport hospice charity, Beechwood Cancer Care. There's been a queue of customers at its Heald Green precinct. But it is only open to shoppers, not droppers, this week.
