PUBLISHED: 14:21 14 June 2013 | UPDATED: 14:21 14 June 2013

A new charity has opened in Ilford today with a little help from a life-size lion.

St Francis Hospice lion Frankie helped Mayor of Redbridge Cllr Felicity Banks, and Ilford North MP Lee Scott to open the shop in High Road this morning.

The St Francis Hospice shop will sell a range of new and donated items including clothing, books and gifts.

Money raised will go to the hospice, based in Havering-atte-Bower near Romford, which provides help to people with cancer, heart disease and other life-limiting illnesses.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
