Priscilla Bacon Hospice opened its second ‘pop up’ store in Taverham on 17th May.
The store is the second ‘pop up’ and third store for the charity, launched in 2016 to support the development of palliative care services in Norfolk.
The charity shop on the Taverham Garden Centre complex will offer a unique blend of quality donated pre-loved goods.
Store manager, Ally Brown said: “We are really pleased to be opening the store at Taverham Garden Centre. The complex and local community have made us feel very welcome and we look forward to meeting our new clientele soon. Every purchase or item donated to the shop will help Priscilla Bacon Hospice.”
The retail outlet was constructed from stripped and refitted shipping containers and have been designed based on the world’s first pop-up mall in Shoreditch, the innovative Boxpark.
Staff and volunteers will gratefully receive any unwanted clothing, books and bric-a-brac. If you are interested in volunteering at the shop, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Information about the shop and charity can be seen on the website and social media channels including Facebook and Twitter.
Head of Retail, Rosemary Fereday said: “We are delighted to be trading in Drayton and I am extremely thankful to all our hard working staff and volunteers who have rallied round to get the new shop up and running. The local community have made us feel very welcome and I would urge local people to pop by our fantastic new shop, meet the team and have a look through some of our high quality items. Every purchase or item donated to the shop will help Priscilla Bacon Hospice.”
The shop was officially opened by Lady Bacon, daughter-in-law of the late Priscilla Bacon whom the hospice is named after.
Staff and volunteers will gratefully receive any unwanted clothing, books and bric-a-brac.
