We have a chain of charity shops and our ebay store allows you to shop from the comfort of your own home 24hrs a day

These shops are an integral part of our strategy to provide firstly capital funding and thereafter revenue funding for ongoing running of the hospice.
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. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to check which items are currently being accepted.

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 our application form, together with the equal opportunities monitoring form, complete and return them to the office - we look forward to meeting you!
