Oakhaven Hospice Shops
TEMPORARY CHANGES TO DONATED ITEMS AT OUR SHOPS AND WAREHOUSE
Since the reopening of our shops we have been inundated with donations, which is fabulous – thank you. We have had so many kind donations we are full to bursting and we need just a little time to deal with them all.
For the shortest time possible we have had to make the following changes:
- We are unable to collect furniture but we hope to re-start in August.
- We can still accept two bags or boxes of donations from you, but please no more as we cannot manage more stock than that safely.
- All our shops still welcome donations of high-quality fashion and homeware and our craft shop (07761 013970) and our children’s shop (01590 610139) are still accepting crafts and toys respectively.
- We do not have the capacity to accept books, CDs, DVDs, games, curtains and linens for the next few weeks…
…. BUT the fundraising team at the hospice can accept still accept good quality games, puzzles, handbags, scarves, toys, tombola gifts, bottles, books, teddies and bric-a-brac as we have our popular Family Fun Day coming up on 11th September. If you are able to bring these items directly to the team at the hospice, that would be wonderful.
Covid has brought us all so many challenges and we will always be so grateful for all your support. Please bear with us as we continue to do the very best we can to raise as much money for your local hospice. We couldn’t do what we do without you and we will get back to normal as soon as we possibly can. Thank you.
