Exciting new Retail Centre to open on Feb 21

St Elizabeth Hospice is to open the biggest charity retail outlet in Ipswich.

The 6,000 sq ft outlet in Holywells Retail Centre, Holywells Road includes around 3,000 sq ft of selling space and a donations drop-off point.

The St Elizabeth Hospice Retail Centre will open on February 21. Volunteers and donated goods and furniture are needed.

Around 40 volunteers are needed across a variety of roles including till work, serving customers, stock distribution and driving the retail van. Flexible hours can be arranged.

Donations of quality clothes, accessories, DVDs, records, books, toys, homeware, linen, small electrical items and bric-a-brac can be dropped off at the centre from February 3rd Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. Parking is available.

If you have furniture to donate, in the first instance please call 0845 259 0319 to check it is suitable.

Jason Rudderham, the Hospice’s area manager, said: “This is an exciting development for St Elizabeth Hospice, it will be the biggest charity retail centre in Ipswich.

“We will be selling a wide range of quality goods and furniture and at great prices which will attract many new customers who will help us raise thousands of pounds a year to fund the Hospice and care for patients and their families.”

House collections can be arranged once the centre has opened.

Supporters can still donate to their nearest shop, for details click here.
