Bigger and better Nailsea shop to reopen


Children’s Hospice South West will be re-opening the charity's flagship shop in Nailsea at this week.

The town centre shop, based in Colliers Walk, has undergone a major refurbishment and customers are being invited to see the bigger and better shop for the first time when the doors open at 10.30am on Friday (August 9).

The shop closed in January this year and temporarily moved to the old ‘Blue Room’ across the precinct. It is the closest CHSW shop to the charity’s Charlton Farm children’s hospice in Wraxall and has been a huge success since first opening in 2007.

Shop manager Jane Abrook said: “We’re delighted to be moving back into our bigger and better Nailsea store. It has been such a big part of the community in Nailsea for more than 10 years and we’re looking forward to showing people the new-look shop.

“We will be offering a super range of goods, including women’s, men’s and children’s clothing and accessories, as well as children’s toys and games and homewares – giving fantastic pre-loved items the chance to be loved again, all while raising money to support Charlton Farm, as well as our children’s hospices in North Devon and Cornwall.

“However you are able to support us in the store, whether that’s shopping with us or by volunteering or dropping off donations, please stop by and say hello, you’ll be assured a very warm welcome.”

Every item sold in the shop will help the charity to offer vital care and respite to more than 500 children with life-limiting conditions and their families across the South West.

CHSW relies almost entirely on voluntary contributions and the ‘whole family’ care provided includes short breaks and respite; specialist palliative care; a sibling service; emergency support, end-of-life care; and bereavement support for as long as is needed.

Stock donations to the new shop are welcome and items can be dropped off at the shop anytime between 9am and 5pm, or alternatively call 01275 866600 to arrange collections of large items.
