We couldn’t manage without considerable support from our local community. Learn about all the different ways in which you can help Prospect Hospice, for example by taking part in fundraising events, playing our lottery, or remembering us in your will. All contributions are greatly appreciated.

A significant amount of Prospect Hospice’s income is raised through our charity shops. The success of our retail operation depends on the generous support of the local community (donating and buying goods), and the commitment of our managers and volunteers. Find out more here.
Last year our 17 Prospect Hospice shops raised £1.96m that helped fund our care
Prospect Hospice has 17 charity shops in and around the Swindon, Marlborough and north Wiltshire area. Between them the shops raise a significant proportion of our income – around a quarter of the total amount needed to run the hospice.
This vital source of funding is dependent on the continued support of our community, including the volunteers who help out in the shops and distribution centre, and the people who donate unwanted items for us to sell (please read more about how to donate items).
All of our shops are open from Monday to Saturday (most from 9am to 5pm), and some are also open on Sundays (10am to 4pm). Please click on the links for each shop for further details.
Our retail operation is run by an enthusiastic team of experienced managers and volunteers. We are always looking for volunteers to carry out various roles:
