We are really excited to confirm that the opening date for our new shop in Collingham is 18th October!
In addition we are delighted to have Robert Jenrick attending to do the official opening for us. Building work is just about complete and much of the interior decorating is already done. We will be ready to start moving in as soon as our carpets are down. Although there is still plenty to do before we open we are confident that all will be in readiness for 18th October.
We have been overwhelmed by the huge volume of donations we have collected on our van runs around Collingham village and local area and would like to thank everyone who has supported us with donations. We have recruited 32 volunteers to help staff the shop and our new Shop Supervisor will be announced very shortly. It’s hard to believe how quickly the shop project has moved forward in the last three weeks and it will be so rewarding to finally open the doors.
Robert will declare the shop officially open around 12:15 on 18th October and we will soon be generating valuable income to support the all important work of Beaumond House Community Hospice.
Many thanks to everyone who has helped us reach this point and those who will help us get ready for the opening day deadline. Full details of our opening day program will be announced shortly. Please put the date in your diaries and come and support us on 18th October.......it will certainly be a day to remember.
