Our refitted wellington shop officially reopened its doors on Saturday morning and local resident and Paralympic Archer Jodie Grinham was there to cut the ribbon.
Jodie, who won a silver medal in the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, was joined by our hospice Sister Leeanne Morgan at the official reopening of the shop on Saturday 29th October.
Jodie is 23 and claimed Britain’s 59th medal at the Rio Games in 2016 alongside John Stubbs as the pair took silver in the mixed team compound open.
Jodie said: “I live in Telford and know how vital the support the hospice provides to families in the community is. I’m really pleased to be here helping the hospice and hope that local people will come and show their support. By supporting local hospice shops people can help Severn Hospice continue to care for families living with terminal illnesses in Shropshire and Mid Wales.”
We have refitted and improved our shop to provide our customers with a brighter and better shopping experience and would like to thank all of our supporters who came along to enter the refitted shop for the first time on Saturday. We also need local people to volunteer and organise the additional stock required to fill our new shelves, so if you have any free time and would like to support our hospice please let us know.
The shop stocks a selection of books, clothing and homewares and is open 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday. For more information about volunteering please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
