Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity (FNHC) has announced it will open a new retail outlet in Haddenham, located at 20 Fort End, with a focus on encouraging local supporters to drop donations to the store, for sorting and distribution to the charity's six shops in Aylesbury, Chinnor, Leighton Buzzard, Wendover, Winslow and recently-opened Thame.
The store will be used, primarily, as a 'Donation Drop Zone' to encourage donors to drop off their donations, which will then be transported to the Charity's newly-established Distribution Centre in Aylesbury (a new Furniture Showroom, located on Chamberlain Road, Aylesbury, and set to be unveiled by the Town Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Allison Harrison, on Saturday at 10.00am), where they will be sorted and stored — awaiting despatch to FNHC's current shops.
Commenting on the move, FNHC's Head of Retail, Phil Moody said: "We are very keen to establish a presence in Haddenham as we have a strong supporter base here. In the past year, we have seen 49 referrals from the Haddenham surgery for Florence Nightingale Hospice in-patient and at-home services, so we feel it's important to open and be a more active part of the community."
The store will be manned by volunteers, with opening times and an opening date to be confirmed in the near future. If you are interested in supporting your local hospice, and have a few hours to spare each week, please contact Tracey O'Hara, FNHC Volunteer Services Manager on 01296 332600 for an informal chat or email email@example.com You can also find more information about volunteering via this link
The Charity's retail shops provide over £200,000 each year — a third of the income needed to continue funding local hospice services for families battling life-limiting illness across Bucks, Beds and Oxon.
