Wirral Hospice St John’s has opened its eighth Wirral charity shop at Allport Road, in Bromborough.
Hospice nurse, Alice Burgess, joined new shop manager, Suzie Stockell, alongside a host of volunteers to welcome many people from the local community into the new shop.
Sited between an office of Charles Stephens Funeral Directors and the Rokka Café and Steak House restaurant, the new shop is bright, clean and ideally placed to offer its wide range of quality goods, all kindly donated by the people of Wirral, to busy shoppers in South Wirral and further afield.
Charity shops make a significant contribution to Wirral Hospice St John’s, providing much-needed funds for its specialist support and nursing care for Wirral people with life-limiting illnesses, and their families.
The latest shop in the hospice portfolio complements the seven existing locations at Birkenhead, Claughton, Heswall, Liscard, Moreton, New Brighton and West Kirby.
Larger items of furniture, beds, sofas, 3 piece suites, and the like, alongside clothes, accessories, books, jewellery and other bric-a-brac are in constant demand.
Allport Road is a busy thoroughfare of shops and places to eat and drink frequented by the good people of Bromborough, Eastham, Spital, and more from further afield.
The new shop is open six days a week, Monday to Saturday, and managed by, Suzie Stockell who recently joined Wirral Hospice St John’s after a career in retail management, including ten years managing shops for Roy Castle Lung Cancer.
She is ably assisted by a dedicated team of volunteers who give up their precious time every week to make a massive contribution helping with various retailing duties, sorting stock, merchandising, window dressing and, all-important, friendly customer services.
Suzie, the manager at the Bromborough store said, “Wirral Hospice St John’s is at the heart of our whole Wirral community and we’re really excited about delivering an excellent shopping experience in Bromborough.
“We’re so appreciative of everyone who donates their pre-loved goods and, of course, our dedicated volunteers who are all absolutely vital in helping us to raise those much-needed funds for our hospice’s specialist care and support. Everyone who comes here can be assured of a heartfelt welcome and our grateful thanks.”
