Chris McMahon, Head of Retail at Teesside Hospice, said, ‘We are absolutely delighted to be opening the new premises in Great Ayton. The size of the unit allows us to bring a fantastic selection of good quality clothing, accessories, homeware and a lovely range of gifts to local shoppers. We’ve already had hundreds of people enquiring about the stock before we’ve opened. We’ve had a fantastic response from the local community in Great Ayton and hope they continue to support us.”

Chris continued, “Each year the hospice running costs increase and we must raise more funds to ensure we can keep delivering our specialist care to the local community. We currently have to raise £6,700 every day to keep the hospice doors open and the new store is a way for us do this. Every penny raised through sale of stock goes directly towards these costs.”

We cannot wait to welcome our supporters to these new premises and to meet lots of new shoppers who are keen to grab a bargain! I urge everybody to pop in and see us!”

If you have any pre-loved items please donate them to Teesside Hospice! You can take them to your nearest charity shop or book a fast and free collection by calling 01642 811140.
