Hospice shop needs more donations of clothing
Trade has increased in recent months during the cost-of-living crisis
Following a busy few months Banbury’s Katharine House Hospice shop is asking for more donations of clothing. The outlet on Bridge Street has seen an increasing number of shoppers visiting during the cost-of-living crisis and now needs more stock.
All the income from sales goes to supporting the work of the Adderbury based hospice.
Clothing for both men and women and for all ages is needed. Anyone with pre-loved, quality clothing which is in need of a new home is asked to drop it off at the shop between 10am and 3.30pm, Monday to Saturday. We’re asked not to leave items by the shop outside these hours as often they have disappeared before staff arrive.
Donations will also be needed for a new Hospice shop which is due to open on Hill View Crescent next to the primary school towards the end of this month.
Scott Bloomfield is Katharine House Hospice’s Retail Manager. He said “Our shop in Banbury is our biggest shop – probably the most well-known shop. It drives most of the revenue that we have through our retail arm.
“It’s very important to us. Donations are always welcome and support is greatly appreciated.”
Those looking for some new additions to the wardrobe can peruse a range of items, from High Street labels through to high end brands, between 9.30am and 4pm Monday to Saturday.
