Community Links

Our shops around the region play an integral role in helping us develop community links and foster ongoing support. We want to be part and parcel of each community we operate in and look for ways to work together. Here are some ideas:

  • We like to get to know our local community. Many of our shops have community notice boards for supporters to advertise events which may be of interest to customers. For more information pop into your local shop to speak to the manager.

  • If you have an idea for an event or group in your local community we’d love to hear from you. Some of our shops have space to accommodate small groups, our retail or fundraising team may be able to provide support with the event, or we can provide items to sell to raise money for the Hospice where relevant.

    We also like to get out and about so if you’re holding a market or event which we could come along to please get in touch with our retail managers:
