Pre- loved Donations , Re-loved by you

We have a chain of charity shops (currently 10 with the objective of having 15 by the end of 2017, and a goal of 20 by the start of the build of the hospice.) These shops are an integral part of our strategy to provide firstly capital funding and thereafter revenue funding for ongoing running of the hospice.

Our shops are also our show-case on the ‘High Street’ with information about our charity, its progress and future events displayed within. Charity shops are a great way to reduce, re-use and recycle. Get a bargain from us, look great too, help the environment, and support our plans for a local hospice.


Importance of Donating

Please support our shops by taking in your unwanted items and, just as importantly, go there to buy clothes, books, DVD's and a wide range of bric-a-brac and small electrical items. If you have any items for the shops and are unable to bring them in yourself please contact us and we will arrange collection.

Importance of Volunteering

Our volunteers bring us abundant local enthusiasm, talent and expertise. Join our friendly team and help to make the hospice a reality. (You may even get a biscuit or two to go with new friends, a laugh and some new skills!) Please download the form below and return to the office - we look forward to meeting you!
