TRINITY Hospice is to open a second new shop in St Annes which will also act as a donation centre for the charity.
The shop on St Albans Road brings the hospice’s total shops in the town to three, after the opening of its new book and music store on Wood Street supporting its dedicated children’s hospice, Brian House, on Monday.
Trinity’s Retail Manager, Paul Guest, said:
“This is an exciting time for retail at Trinity Hospice. We’re really looking forward to opening our new St Anne’s shop and donation centre, which will be a convenient alternative to our donation centre in Blackpool for all who need it.”
The charity hasn’t released an opening date for the new shop yet but says updates will be provided through its social media channels.
“We have seen exceptional levels of support since re-opening our donation centre in March so that we could prepare our shops for re-opening, in line with national Covid restrictions, on Monday.
“Our new Brian House book and music store has been warmly welcomed on the high street, with lots of people coming in to grab a bargain and learn more about the work we do for our area’s most fragile children and their families.
“A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us, whether they’ve made a donation or visited one of our shops – you have all helped Trinity to provide exceptional, outstanding care to all who need it across the Fylde coast.”
As the new shops open and thrive in their communities, Trinity is calling for donations of all good-quality items, including furniture. The charity is also looking for retail volunteers, with roles in the shop and donation centres, as well as home-based uploading items to sell on its eBay store.
