Anticipation turned to jubilation as the local community gathered to celebrate the long-awaited opening of Prospect Hospice’s newest shop in the heart of Tadpole Garden Village on Tuesday 14 November.
The ribbon was gracefully cut shortly after 10am by Mayor Barbara Parry and nurses from the charity, with a bustling crowd of supporters, dedicated staff, and enthusiastic volunteers.
Jeremy Lune, CEO at Prospect Hospice shared: “This is an opportunity for our patient and family services to be more accessible in the community. The Tadpole shop is in a prime location to give local people a better understanding of the services we offer and the support we can provide.”
At the Tadpole boutique charity shop, you’ll discover an exceptional array of new goods, pre-owned treasures and vintage finds. From trendy fashion to distinctive home decor pieces, the newest Prospect Hospice shop presents a meticulously selected assortment that competes with any high-end retailer.
One happy customer was Clare Harris who was one of the first supporters into the new shop. “The shop looks amazing and it will definitely be a great addition to Tadpole.” said Clare. “There is a fantastic variety of good-quality items. I managed to pick up some Christmas gifts for my family and even treated myself to a couple of books.”
Victoria Canavan, head of retail at Prospect Hospice said: “We’re really excited about this shop opening. We pride ourselves on being more than a charity shop. We aim to create hubs for the community where people can stop by for a chat.
We have a great team of volunteers to help run the shop, but we’d love to welcome more. Volunteering is a brilliant way to meet new people and learn new skills.”
