Rate relief plan hits Tenovus charity shop expansion

The biggest charity retailer in Wales, Tenovus, has abandoned plans to open 14 new shops over the next two years.

The decision comes as the Welsh government considers cutting business rate relief for charities.

The charity's warning that jobs and stores could close has been echoed by British Heart Foundation Cymru which says almost a third of its shops are under threat if the proposals go ahead.
