Phased Reopening

Charity Shops

We have charity shops located all across the Borough of Bolton, selling donated items as well as our popular range of Christmas cards and calendars from September to December each year. We also have a small gift shop located at the hospice, which sells a range of cards, gifts and branded merchandise all year round.

The aim of our charity shops is to provide a regular and sustainable source of income that supports the work of the hospice. We also recycle a wide range of goods to do our bit for the environment and raise extra funds.

We pride ourselves in offering a wide variety of items at the best possible price so visit one of our shops today to pick up a bargain!
