St Barnabas opens ninth Lincoln charity shop to support hospice service

St Barnabas Hospice set to open its ninth charity shop in Lincoln in support of the growing demand for hospice services in the area.

The shop on Lincoln High Street is the charity’s 27th in the county and is located next to the ongoing level crossing footbridge.

The shop will be opened by the hospice chief executive, Chris Wheway on Saturday, April 16 at 10am.

Stocking a mix of fashion, including vintage and retro pieces, books, music, and household items, the shop will have something for everyone.

In addition, new merchandise will be available including handbags, accessories and gift ideas.

Caroline Peach, Retail Manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said: “We are delighted to be opening our new store in the heart of Lincoln’s busy shopping district.

“Our fabulous new-look store will guarantee a wonderful shopping experience that will become a firm favourite with locals and visitors.

“The money raised from sales at our shop will help to support our hospice services in Lincoln and right across the county.

“The demand for our hospice services is continuing to grow and we are proud to be able to support that growth and take the quality of palliative care to new heights.”

The store will open seven days a week, Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, and Sunday 10am to 4pm and will be run by a team of staff and volunteers.

The charity is currently appealing for new volunteers to join their growing team.

Caroline added: “We are appealing to our local community to donate their time and help in the running of our new shop.

“Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation and we depend of their selfless dedication to be able to deliver our hospice services across the county.

“Volunteering is a wonderful way for people to learn new skills, boost their CV and give something back to their community. All of our volunteers receive training and hands-on experience within the retail industry.”
