With sparkly lights strung across the streets and gift ideas in every shop window, it’s not hard to spot that Christmas is on its way. But before you head to the usual High Street stores to buy your presents this year, you might want to pop into your local Phyllis Tuckwell shop…
From unique gifts for family members, to affordable presents for kids to buy their parents and ideas for office secret Santas, Phyllis Tuckwell’s shops have a wide range of quality second-hand items on offer.
“We recently sold a Harrod’s teddy bear and a Prada handbag,” says Sarah Gallagher, Area Retail Manager at Phyllis Tuckwell. “We get a lot of lovely gift sets donated which make great gifts for kids to buy their parents, as we sell them for a fraction of the price they would originally have been bought for. And with the environment being so important, shopping with us also contributes to a greener, more sustainable Christmas, as items have a second life. "
Phyllis Tuckwell also sells quality clothes, shoes and accessories, as well as books, DVDs and CDs, all of which make great presents or stocking fillers. During the festive season they also stock a range of Christmas cards and diaries, so you may find that popping in for a quick browse sees you ticking a lot more than just one item off your Christmas list!
You won’t have to go far to find your local Phyllis Tuckwell shop, as there are 18 across the charity’s catchment area of West Surrey and North-East Hampshire. All of the money they raise goes directly towards helping fund the supportive and end of life care which the charity offers to local patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer. Every day they support over 250 patients, relatives and carers - in their own homes, in the community, at the Hospice in Farnham and at the Beacon Centre in Guildford – but as the NHS/Government only covers 20% of their costs, they have to raise over £20,000 a day to be able to offer all of these services, and therefore rely heavily on the support and generosity of the local community.
You can find a full list of all their shops, along with their addresses, at www.pth.org.uk/our-high-street-shops.
