Highland Hospice has reopened its charity shop in Nairn following its refurbishment.
The official reopening of the shop took place yesterday on Wednesday 9th May at 10am, with Judy McIntosh, who has volunteered in the shop since it first opened, cutting the ribbon. Highland Hospice Chief Executive Officer Kenny Steele was also in attendance.
The Hospice’s Retail Manager Susan Cooper said, “It is wonderful to see our shop in Nairn looking so good. It was in need of a makeover, having not been refurbished for many years, so it will provide a nicer shopping experience for customers as well as a better working environment for our volunteers.”
“I would especially like to thank the shop’s supervisor Aileen Campbell and her team of volunteers for all the hard work they have put into making this happen.”
She added, “We are always looking for good quality donations which we move between our shops to where they are best placed in order to maximise fundraising. A large part of our income comes from the Hospice’s shops across the whole of the Highlands, and our retail operation plays a vital part in enabling us to provide a high standard of care to patients and their loved ones at a difficult time.”
The shop, which opened in 1993, is currently open from Monday to Saturday between 10am and 4pm. If anyone is interested in joining its team of volunteers, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.highlandhospice.org/volunt...
