What's new with our shops

After a challenging few months when our stores had to close due to Covid-19, I am very pleased to confirm that we have now successfully re-opened all our 11 stores across Basingstoke and North Hampshire. Our stores are currently open Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to 4pm.

Our Donation Centre has also re-opened, operating Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm. However, we have been experiencing an incredible amout of donations and would encourage you to check the website for the latest news before heading to the donation centre. You can find the latest here.

All our operations have been risk assessed on managing the risks of Covid-19 and measures put in place for the safety of our staff, volunteers, customers, and donors.

During lockdown we retained a few members of our team to work on eBay sales and this has been very successful. We have recruited an Online Sales Manager, Gavin Page, and we are looking to boost the number of volunteers to help us to increase our income for our hospice. If you can spare a few hours a week or know someone who may be interested in researching and listing items for sale online, please contact our Voluntary Services team on 01256 844744.

All our current listings for sale on eBay can be found by clicking here.

We also have some space, socially distanced, for some more volunteers to join our fantastic teams in our Donation Centre and some of our stores so if eBay isn’t your thing but you can spare a few hours a week, call us on 01256 844744 to find out more about our volunteer roles.

To all our donors and customers, thank you for your continued support through this difficult time and for the many generous monetary donations our customers have given us as we re-opened our stores, we are very grateful.

Every donation we receive and every item you buy will help our hospice at a time when it is truly needed, thank you.
