Staff and volunteers were joined by the local Menai Bridge community to celebrate the opening of a new Hospice shop.

Earlier this year, Hospice at Home, Gwynedd and Anglesey proudly announced that they had completed a merger with St David’s Hospice. The charity now functions under the name St David’s Hospice, with a new look logo featuring figures in a heart shape and symbolises the people in the local community who are at the heart of their organisation.

The shop relocated from Uxbridge Street across the road to the High Street last week and the ribbon was cut by Mrs Pat Brooke, Hospice trustee who has been long-standing voluntary member of the Board with the Hospice at Home, Gwynedd and Anglesey charity for over 28 years.

Mrs Brooke said:

“Our Charity Shops are a huge source of income to the work of the Hospice. The local community has been so supportive over the years both with donations and in providing a dedicated band of volunteers who give so generously of their time and energy. Thank you all and please continue your great work.”

The organisation has 25 shops across Anglesey, Gwynedd and Conwy and are a vital source of income for the charity. The money raised help to provide deliver free, high-quality, specialist palliative care to patients with advanced illnesses, their family and carers from North West Wales.
