St David’s Hospice has added to its portfolio of shops after revealing its new store in Holyhead last week.
Holyhead Town Mayor Cllr Alan Williams and local radio presenter Kev Bach cut the ribbon and officially opened the shop for business on Thursday morning (17th October).
The shop, on Stanley Street, Holyhead sells an array of clothing, books, toys, bric-a-brac and other household items to raise funds for local hospice care.
Carol Morley, Area Retail Manager for Gwynedd and Anglesey, is delighted by the charity’s new shop. She said:
“We’re really excited to be opening our brand new Holyhead shop. Staff and volunteers have been working tirelessly over the last few months to get the shop ready for the public.
“The shop is looking great, with a bright, fresh interior and new branding. We also have lots of really good quality stock available and our team can’t wait to welcome shoppers.”
All monies raised will go towards the new Anglesey Hospice to be located within Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley, Holyhead. The Hospice, which is expected to be completed in February 2020, is independent of the NHS and will be funded and run by St David’s Hospice.
All monies raised at the Holyhead Shop will go towards the building and staffing costs to ensure that the highest standard of inpatient care can be given to patients in a safe and home-from-home environment. In conjunction with the new Holyhead shop, a fundraising appeal has been launched for the £475,000 needed to complete construction.
