Longfield opens new shop in Winchcombe

Today, (February 1) Longfield Community Hospice is set to open a brand-new charity shop in Winchcombe.

It's aimed at shoppers looking for a more budget-friendly and sustainable way to shop while supporting the local hospice.

The official opening was set to take place at 10am with Clare Davis, the hospice's new CEO, coming to see the new shop. Led by shop manager Lloyd Thomas and deputy manager Mark Shaw, their team of staff and volunteers will be on hand to show customers around the store, which will be packed with a great selection of quality second-hand clothes, accessories, homeware, electricals, music and books.

Laura Owen, head of retail at Longfield, said: "Opening a new store in Winchcombe is a really exciting development in our retail portfolio. This is a completely new location and area for us, and we are really looking forward to welcoming the community to our shop.

"There is something for everyone and I am sure shoppers will be delighted by the exceptional quality, value and range of goods we will be selling.

"The funds raised from the shop will help ensure Longfield Hospice can be there when it matters for those in need of support for those with a life-limiting illness."

The new shop is also calling on the public to consider volunteering with Longfield. Volunteers can help with everything from sorting and preparing stock, to merchandising and sales in both this shop and across the charity's 20 shops in Gloucestershire. By supporting Longfield in any way, locals can help to provide more care to more people whilst meeting new people and creating new social circles in the local community.
