Dunmow high street charity shop gets a makeover

A DUNMOW high street charity shop has received a well earned makeover.

The St Clare Hospice shop, which has been trading for almost 10 years, was closed for a week while builders repainted it and added some new shelves to provide more space to display more goods.

The new-look store was reopened on Monday.

Retail sales manager, Louise Hamilton, said: “We invited customers and donors along, new and old, to join our shop team for tea and cakes as a small gesture of our appreciation of their continued support.

“Thanks to all the support of the local community, Dunmow’s store is our most profitable.”

St Clare Hospice provides hospice care for the whole of West Essex and the East Hertfordshire borders for people who have life limiting illnesses. It costs �2.3 million a year to provide this specialist palliative service, yet only 26 per cent of that is government funded. For more information visit stclare-hospice.co.uk
