St Mary's Hospice @stmaryshospice
St Marys Hospice is delighted to announce that our hospice shop in Grange-over-Sands will be re-opening on Thursday 10th November at 10am after being refurbished.
The St Mary's shop in Yewbarrow Terrace, Grange-over-Sands is welcoming customers back after it closed for a makeover earlier this month. The shop's interior has been updated with new decor, new fittings and lighting. Staff and volunteers have worked with local suppliers to deliver the refurbished shop on a small budget.
St Mary’s Hospice Head of Retail, Caroline Welch said: "We are excited about the changes that we have made to the shop. Before it was looking very tired and it’s now bright, welcoming and up to date, with better fittings and more space to display stock. It looks absolutely fantastic. It is a real credit to all the hard work everyone has put in. We want to thank everyone involved in giving the shop a makeover quickly and with so little spend. We hope our community will continue to support the shop as they have done so wonderfully in the past. All our profits are ploughed back in to our charity, enabling more patients and their families to have care, comfort and support when they need it most.”
Caroline continues: “The shop welcomes donations of good quality items including clothing, shoes, accessories, household goods and books. We ask customers
to gift aid their items – which is free to them and makes their donation go even further. Everything our customers buy or donate makes a real difference.
We also have volunteering opportunities, just come into our shop to find out more.”
The Grange-over-Sands shop is open 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.
