Shrewsbury’s dedicated followers of fashion are being urged to remember a local charity when they cast off their old clobber and get set for summer.

Severn Hospice’s Mardol shop is having a makeover of its own and is appealing to the community for its support in re-stocking the shelves and hangers.

Shop manager Elizabeth Andrews said: “If you’re not wearing it, we want it!”

Elizabeth and her team of more than 40 volunteers have been busy behind the scenes getting everything ready for the shop’s reopening date of 11 July.

She said: “We’re in the middle of a massive makeover which will give us more sales space and a nicer place for people to come and browse for bargains.

“We rely so much on the community to support us and I’m appealing to them to remember us if they’re having their own wardrobe refresh.

“Last year, the hospice was able to help 367 people who lived within five miles of the shop thanks to the generosity of all our supporters who brought in items to sell and our shoppers who came along to buy them.

“We’re here Monday to Saturday to accept donations, or people can use our furniture store on Ennerdale Road opposite Alan Ward seven days a week.

“Just bob it in a bag for us and we’ll do the rest,” she added.
