Highland Hospice has reopened its charity shop on Wick’s High Street after it was closed for four weeks undergoing refurbishment.
The official reopening of the shop took place on Monday 22 January at 10am, with its owner Major Dunnett cutting the ribbon, although the shop has been open to the public since Tuesday 14 November.
The Hospice’s Retail Manager Susan Cooper said, “It is wonderful to see our shop in Wick looking so good. The refurbishment has been long overdue and 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 Chris Henderson and her team of volunteers for all the hard work they have put into making this happen. The shop has been flourishing recently, and its new look should enhance that even further.”
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...
