The Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity officially opened its new shop at Fort End in Haddenham on Thursday morning 3rd December.
The retail outlet is housed in the former betting shop premises, right next to the House of Spice.
The formal ribbon cutting ceremony was carried out by Margaret Aston, Chairperson of Haddenham Parish Council.
The Haddenham shop is the eighth retail outlet that Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity has opened. It will be a satellite store in support of the charity's Thame shop and be overseen by its manager, Rachel Trendell.
The premises will be acting as a small retail outlet, but its primary role will be as a donation receiving centre. It will specialise in toys, books and bric-a-brac.
