Staff outside new Wrexham shop

Our new Wrexham shop will be officially opening this month with volunteers and donations needed.

The shop at Island Green will officially open on Saturday 21st January at 10am.

There will be some special guests to open the shop and there will be goodie bags and balloons handed out, along with a mystery prize for the shop’s 100th customer.

Staff and volunteers ready for the opening

Shop manager Becky Hemmings said:  “We are delighted to be able to open our Island Green shop in Wrexham.

“We have been busy for a little while cleaning, painting, arranging shelving and making the shop sparkle for our customers.

“We are very excited to open and are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and also making new friends.”

Volunteers needed

Ahead of the shop opening, Becky is asking if anyone has any donations they can make to take them to the new shop, while volunteers are also needed to help out.

“We’d love to hear from anyone who wants to join and volunteer with us,” she said. “If you have any time that you can give us, then we would love to welcome you to come and have a chat with us here at the shop.”

Angela Whelan, Head of Retail, said: “We are delighted to be able to open our new Wrexham shop at Island Green.

“We receive generous support from people in the area which enables us to provide care for local children and families at our hospices.

“Our shops play a vital role in generating much-needed funds to support families in our community; support that is more important than ever during these difficult times.

“I have no doubt that the people of Wrexham will continue to support the shop’s success as customers, volunteers and donors.”
