Lincolnshire hospice to open charity shop in Boston

9th March 2015

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is set to open a charity shop in Boston in support of the growing demand for services in this area

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice are opening their twenty-sixth charity shop in Boston’s town centre. The shop, which is located at 48 Market Place, will open to the public on Saturday 14th March at 10.30am.

The shop will span two floors with clothing, toys, household items and new goods on the ground floor. Upstairs there will be a dedicated book shop stocking a wide range of books from an assortment of genres.

Caroline Peach, Retail Manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:

“The new shop is in a wonderful location and is in the midst of Boston’s busy shopping district. We hope that the Boston community will benefit from the large range of quality goods we have to offer and that it will become a regular shopping spot for locals and visitors.”

The store will open Monday to Saturday 9am – 4.30pm and will be run by a team of staff and volunteers. The charity is looking for volunteers to join their dedicated team and help out in the new shop

Caroline said: “We are currently recruiting new volunteers to join us in the running of our new shop. Full training will be given and sorting donated stock and serving customers are just some of the duties required.

“Volunteers are so highly regarded at St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice as they are the lifeblood of the organisation and with their hard work and commitment we can continue to provide our specialist support and care.”
