Staff and volunteers at Weston Hospicecare’s Milton Road shop will soon be enjoying a larger premises when the shop relocates next month.

The charity’s current Milton Road shop closed its doors for the last time on Saturday and the new store will be reopening just two doors down along the Weston street, so it can have a wider range of goods and furniture on sale.

Milton Road shop manager Diane Poulson said: “I feel really privileged to have the opportunity to move into the new and larger premises.

“The increase in demand for home goods, such as shabby chic furniture, and for other bargains to be found in our shops means that there’s a higher need for more space and more goods.”

The hospice says it is in need of more volunteers to lend a hand at the new shop once it opens on August 16.

Volunteer and training administrator Sue Phillips said: “Our shop volunteers play an indispensable role in supporting and engaging with our community while raising essential funds for the hospice.

“We encourage anyone who might be interested to call us for more details.”

Anyone who is interested in volunteering at the Milton Road shop, or other sites, should contact 01934 423975.
