Hospiscare’s massive new warehouse store, filled with furniture, household goods and retro finds was opened by the Mayor of Honiton this week.
Exeter-based charity Hospiscare opened the Dowell Street warehouse shop to help fund Kings House day hospice that provides expert nursing care for families in East Devon.
Mayor Caroline Kolek cut the ribbon and made special thanks to the volunteers who give their time, and Neil Parish MP led the well-wishing for the charity’s new venture. Helen Hutter, Hospiscare head of retail, said: “Come and explore our Aladdin’s cave with pretty much everything for sale, including vintage, vinyl and bargain clothing. We look forward to meeting you, and hope you will support us by volunteering, donating and buying goods!”
The new store is situated on the lower ground floor below Whittons Auctioneers, and will be a variation of the charity’s successful warehouse store on Marsh Barton in Exeter, with high and low end goods for sale.
“It has been a massive team effort from staff and volunteers to get this new venture ready to open. We are all very excited, it is going to be such a great boost to support our services for local families.”
The charity have recruited 3 new members of staff, and already have some of the volunteers they need, but are looking for more. Volunteers can help by operating the till, sorting donations, PAT testing, arranging displays, cleaning furniture, stocking the shelves, and much more.
