Behind the scenes at the Hospice Shop
The Hospice Shop reflects Marlborough Hospice Trust’s vision to have a shop occupying a niche position at the top end of the local charity shops. It operates efficiently and profitably to financially support the hospice. This success is underpinned by careful strategic planning. As a ‘charity shop’, the Hospice Shop is set up specifically to raise funds for the hospice. To do this, staff seek to secure the best return from any donated article.
The main shop has expanded and is now double the size it was originally. This allows room for a wider range of goods, bric-a-brac, clothing and larger items of furniture. As part of the expansion a new ‘discount’ shop has been set up next door. All items in this shop are $5 or less. The team are always looking for new volunteers to join them and encourage you to drop in for a chat and a browse around.
The Hospice Shop is always keen to receive good quality second hand items. It is a treasure-trove for shoppers looking for that special something for their home, wardrobe or as a gift for a friend.
