The Florence Nightingale Hospice Shop (formally the turf accountants) has been open in the village for three months and staff and volunteers have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the people from Haddenham and the adjoining villages. They wish to thank residents for all their donations.
Initially it was advertised as a dropping off point, so many people are unaware that the charity has a thriving shop selling things as diverse as DVDs, CDs, books, lots of crockery, scarfs for every occasion and of course toys.
So, never be short of a gift, if you have the time come and choose a jigsaw or a game to play. The selection of children's books is truly mind blowing.
Staff and volunteers hope to include some new items such as mens socks, an item which has proved very successful in the charity's other shops.
More challenging for the hospice charity is the fact that they are desperately short of volunteers. At the moment the Haddenham shop is being helped out by staff from Aylesbury. The Haddenham shop has a rota split down into hourly slots — so if you have a few hours to offer, please pop into the shop for a volunteer pack.
Regular visitors often pop into the shop for a quick chat on their way to the shops. Says Liz Moore: "Please feel free, we love to hear from you and who knows you might find that film or book you have always wanted. We look forward to seeing you."
