With the proposed new guidelines from the Government, Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland is forging a phased plan for the re-opening our 4 Charity Shops at Carlisle, Penrith, Wigton and Keswick but to do this need the help of the local community.
Julie Blundell, Head of Income Generation and Marketing, said “We kindly ask for the support of Volunteers, perhaps your circumstances have changed and it now allows you the opportunity to give volunteer time? This can be short term or for longer if suitable, if so this would be of tremendous help. Are you on furlough, a student (over the age of 16) or perhaps have more time available to help a local Charity during these challenging times?”
The retail arm of Hospice at Home raises vital funds which are important to enable the charity’s Clinical Team to provide care and comfort within the home to the most vulnerable amongst the community.
If you are interested, please email [email protected] or telephone 01768 210719.
Julie added “May we also take the opportunity to thank our supporters who have been saving donations in preparation for the re-opening of the Shops. Further information will be publicised once the phased re-opening dates of each Shop is finalised.”
Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland needs to raise 80 per cent of its annual running costs which equates to approximately £20,000 each week and this couldn’t be achieved without the kindness of the local community, businesses and organisations.
