Michelle Nicholls, director of retail and trading, said the charity is “so pleased to be back trading” after such a long time of being unable to raise vital funds for the hospice.
“The first week has gone exceptionally well. All customers have received a warm welcome and found some fantastic bargains — in a new safe way.”
Donation stations (open between 10am — 4pm) have been set up at the Romford electrical store, Harold Hill furniture store and the hospice’s Ashton Gate warehouse. People are also reminded not to leave donations outside the shops.
