Today, Thursday 11th June, Peace Hospice Care announces that it is opening six of its charity shops for taking donations from 17th June. Those shops are: Radlett, Watford Pond, Bushey, St Albans, Garston and Borehamwood. Opening times for all shops will be 10am-4pm, Monday-Saturday.
The charity is initially opening these shops for donations only and plans to open them fully at the end of the month so customers can buy items. Peace Hospice Care’s Retail team is currently preparing the shops for opening with thorough cleaning and revised procedures to ensure the safety of customers and staff.
Sarah Goad, Director of Income Generation at Peace Hospice Care, said: “I am very excited that we are opening a number of our shops for accepting donations and able to welcome back our supporters. The health and wellbeing of our customers, community and staff is our top priority and we are following Government advice as we put in place measures to ensure that our shops are safe. We need the support of the local community more than ever, so I’d encourage everyone to bring their good quality unwanted items to one of the shops we are opening on 17th June.”
Due to the charity’s shops being closed and fundraising events postponed, Peace Hospice Care looks set to lose £240,000 in the month of June, so is asking the local community for their support with donations of unwanted items.
Peace Hospice Care’s shops which will open for taking donations on 17th June, are:
