Prepare to shop again in store!
For the very many kind-hearted supporters who are able to donate and shop at our charity shops across North East and North Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire and Hull, you will be pleased to know that we will be reopening a number of shops from 10 o’clock on Wednesday 2nd December, not least to get your hands on our fabulous range of Christmas card designs.
You’ll know that a number of measures have already been taken to ensure the safety of our staff, customers and supporters, but please be assured that the same friendly and helpful welcome awaits our customers as it always has done.
In order to maintain social distancing, we will continue to limit the number of customers allowed into our stores at any one time. This means that you may be asked to wait outside when the maximum number of customers is reached. Our stores will also undergo regular cleaning of all surfaces, equipment and doors, and all donations will be set aside for 48 hours before being steamed (where possible) and made available for sale.
Tom Ryan, Head of Retail at St Andrew’s Hospice said “We are delighted to be able to reopen our shops once again from Wednesday. It is so very important to us that we are able to continue to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our staff, customers and supporters and I am confident that the measures we have in place will do exactly that. I’d like to thank everyone in our team for their continued dedication and commitment throughout this time – and our donors for once again saving their precious pre-loved items for us.”
Our shops provide a vital source of income to fund the care needed by our patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families who come to us for support. Your donations and custom at this time would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your continued support and for helping us continue to make each day count.
