Charity delight as new Love to Give shop opens in Kings Langley
Customers flocked to the opening of a new Love to Give shop in Kings Langley at the weekend.
The shop is next to the Post Office in Hempstead Road and will be the only one of its kind in the village. All its profits will go towards funding the work of The Hospice of St Francis and the shop manager will be supported by a team of local volunteers.
Anne Sillwood, from Whitlars Drive and the store’s first customer, said: "It’s absolutely fantastic, I was here at 8.30am and couldn’t wait for it to open. I’d spotted the hats in the window, but the quality of the stock is amazing. There’s everything from LK Bennett and Hobbs to Fenn, Wright and Manson to Radley.
"It’s beautifully presented and I can’t believe that I’ve managed to snaffle four pairs of shoes, including a pair of Carvela’s, a Russell & Bromley handbag, clothing and homeware for £56."
Dr Ros Taylor, Hospice Director and herself a Kings Langley resident, performed the official ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, surrounded by Hospice staff and volunteers.
She said: "I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve been able to open our ninth Love to Give shop on my home patch.
"The footfall today has been amazing and people have been so welcoming. I’d like to thank everyone for their support - it feels like we’re part of the community already."
