A new shop opened in Brigg at the weekend.
It is in Chapel Court, near the town's main Old Courts Road car park.
The grand opening of the Cure DM CIC Myotonic Dystrophy support shop took place on Saturday afternoon.
The Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight Fund exists to help those with Myotonic Dystrophy, their families and carers.
Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy is a long term disorder that affects muscle function.
Ken Harrison, from Brigg Matters Magazine, was at the launch.
He told Brigg Blog that coinciding with the opening of the Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy  (CMD) charity shop, based at Rosa in Chapel Court, Brigg Town Mayor, Coun Sharon Riggall, was offered the opportunity to present cheques - proceeds from Brigg's Tree Of Remembrance - to deserving groups.
Ken has kindly supplied these pictures.
