Weston Hospicecare has opened its second charity shop in Burnham-On-Sea town centre this week.
Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge Mayor Cllr Bill Hancock cut a ribbon outside the new shop in the High Street on Monday (October 23rd) to officially open it.
The new shop sells a wide range of clothing and household goods. The charity’s existing ‘£1 charity shop’ in College Street will remain open.
Gemma Turner, Retail Director for Weston Hospicecare, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We are delighted to have opened our new High Street shop in Burnham-On-Sea.”
“The shop reflects the great support and generosity that we receive from the Burnham community, and will are selling a great range of pre-loved and new goods at great prices.”
By supporting the new store, customers will be helping to ensure that Weston Hospicecare can continue to provide specialist palliative care to those affected by life-limiting illnesses in Burnham-On-Sea, Weston-super-Mare, and the surrounding areas.
“Weston Hospicecare costs over £4 million to keep running each year, and only 20% of those running costs are funded by the NHS. The rest is raised through the generosity of the local community, who take part in fundraising events or shop in the wide network of shops.”
