South Oxhey Peace Hospice shop appeals for more items
12:23pm Wednesday 26th September 2012 in News
The South Oxhey Peace Hospice charity shop has seen a rapid decline in the number of furniture items being donated.
An empty store cupboard usually packed with furniture items is a worrying sign for the charity, which relies so heavily on the income from its shops.
Head of trading Carol Kerrey said: "Getting good quality furniture is so important to us as it really helps us with our income.
"We are receiving less furniture. We rely on our shops to provide more than a third of the income we need each year to keep our services going.
"I would like to appeal to anyone who has furniture that they no longer need, to get in touch with us as it will be such a great help.
"We also offer a collection service."
The Peace Hospice , which has 12 high street shops, raised more than £1.8 million last year through its trading operation.
The shops not only sell furniture but also a wide range of both new and used quality items including clothing, books and bric-a-brac at affordable prices.
The hospice has two shops in Watford high street and at other locations across south west Hertfordshire including Bushey, Chorleywood, Garston, Radlett, South Oxhey, Borehamwood and on the Tudor estate.
