“Our shops play such an important part in raising essential funds to support patient care. They bring in over £1 million a year and are incredibly well supported in the community – and we can only run the shops with the help of our fabulous volunteers.

“It’s great to have all of our shops open again following the easing of Covid restrictions and we are really looking forward to welcoming customers to our new shop in Westborough.”

The shop will be open from 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Saturday. Anyone interested in volunteering opportunities at the shop is welcome to call in and chat to shop manager Jo Major.
