A STAFFORD charity shop closed due to flooding will reopen on Monday refurbished and ready to raise cash for the adults and families it supports.
The Katharine House Hospice shop on Stafford Street was forced to close earlier in the year after it fell victim to severe weather and flood damage but shop manager Angela Whelan said she was growing excited as the date drew closer for the grand reopening.
“We are excited about re opening our Stafford shop, it has been missed by our supporters on the high street. We will have an extensive range of Ladies wear, Accessories and Home ware on offer as well as our hospice Christmas Cards."
Retail director Kate Sharp paid tribute to the charities loyal supporters, many of whom continued to donate goods at our other shops whilst the Stafford shop was closed.
"We rely more than ever on the kindness of local people who donate everything from clothing to sofas that we can sell in our shops," she said. "Every penny we raise goes directly to the care of local people and support for their families at the hospice and in our community.
"Each year we need to raise £2.6m to keep our services running – in supporting the shops local people are making a vital contribution to care."
Katharine House Hospice provide free care and support to adults and their families coping with progressive illness.
