The South Oxhey Peace Hospice charity shop has seen a rapid decline in the number of furniture items being donated to its shop.
An empty store cupboard usually packed with furniture items is a worrying sign for the charity which relies so heavily on the income from its shops.
Head of Trading, Carol Kerrey said ‘Getting good quality furniture is so important to us as it really helps us with our income. We are receiving less furtniture We rely on our shops to provide more than a third of the income we need each year to keep our services going. I would like to appeal to anyone who has furniture that they no longer need, to get in touch with us as it will be such a great help. We also offer a collection service’.
The Peace Hospice which has 12 high street shops raised more than £1.8 million last year through its trading operation. The shops not only sell furniture but a wide range of both new and used quality items including clothing, books and bric-a-brac at affordable prices.
The Hospice has 2 shops in Watford high street and at other locations across South West Hertfordshire including Borehamwood, Bushey, Chorleywood, Garston, Radlett, South Oxhey and Tudor.
The Peace Hospice provides an inpatient unit, day service, hospice at home service as well as bereavement support. All the care that the Hospice provides is free.
