Your local hospice has recently opened a new style of charity shop in partnership with Bryson Recycling and will benefit from 50% of the profit.
The St David’s Hospice Reuse Shop is a great way to care for the environment at the same time as caring for local adult patients with advanced illnesses or those in need of end of life care, and their families.
Based at the Mochdre Recycling centre on Bron-y-Nant Road, the new store is packed with pre-loved items awaiting a new home.
Hospice Administrator, Janet Magill said:
“It is amazing what people throw away. We receive all sorts of items and many have a lot more life in them.
“The staff on site spot and rescue saleable goods before they are placed into the recycling skips. They are then displayed in the new shop at the recycling centre. It is full of treasures waiting to be discovered. Pop on down to our reuse shop and see for yourself! There is something there for everyone”
The reuse shop is open seven days a week, 9am – 5pm and is open to the general public to browse and purchased items.
The Hospice is currently seeking volunteers to help man the shop. The role will involve greeting and thanking members of public as they drop off goods, assisting with the preparation of stock and processing sales.
For further information about the Reuse Shop and volunteering please contact Janet Magill on 01492 879058.
