Rennie Grove Hospice Care is opening a new charity shop in London Colney and local residents are invited to join its retail team at the grand opening at 11am on Monday 27 November.
Located at 184 High Street, London Colney, the shop is the 25th in Rennie Grove’s chain of charity shops across Herts and Bucks. It will offer a range of new and good quality pre-loved items for sale, including men’s, women’s and children’s clothes and shoes; handbags and jewellery; children’s toys; books and ornaments. Shoppers will also be able to buy from Rennie Grove’s range of Christmas cards as well as calendars and diaries for 2018.
Director of Retail and Trading for the charity, Deborah Gould, said: “We’d love everyone to join us at the opening and be among the first to see inside this newest addition to the Rennie Grove retail family. Thanks to our generous donors, we have some beautiful items for sale and you’ll be able to bag a bargain as soon as we open for business.”
Rennie Grove’s retail operation is responsible for contributing more than £2 million towards the charity’s £7.6 million annual budget.
“Donating items to be sold, working as a volunteer or buying items from our shops means that you are making a really important contribution towards raising much needed funds for Rennie Grove Hospice Care. These funds mean that our nurses can continue to provide care and support for adults and children diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illness and their families. Every year through our 24/7 Hospice at Home service, our Family Support services and the range of Day Services at Grove House, St Albans we give thousands of patients the choice to stay at home, surrounded by their families and friends,” adds Deborah.
If you are interested in volunteering at the new London Colney shop – or at any of Rennie Grove’s shops - or would like to find out more then please then get in touch with the Volunteer Services Team on 01727 731000 or come along and meet the friendly in-store team at the official opening on 27 November.
