To #uniteandprotect your local hospice and community, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close our 14 shops and donation centre, as a result of the impact of Coronavirus. Also more event are affected too.

Shops temporarily close

We know many of you will be disappointed but please be assured the safety of our customers, volunteers and staff are of paramount importance to us and so the shops will remain closed until further notice.

We appreciate many of you will now have time to sort out your cupboards but please can we ask that you hold onto your donations until our shops reopen. Please remember leaving them outside the shops is fly tipping!

We have also cancelled the Plant Sale due to take place in May. We know some of you have been busy growing for us and when everything has calmed down, we would be more than happy to accept these donations as we can use them in our gardens or hold a stall outside one of our shops. Both of which would benefit the patients and support the care we provide.

The Challenge Walk, also due to take place in May, has been postposed and we will let you know as soon as we have a new date.

Closing the shops and cancelling events means St Leonard's Hospice will lose significant income which is needed for us to provide vital care for patients and their families with a life-limiting illness. We really appreciate that this is a difficult time for everyone but if you are able to support us, please do so here.

Thank you for understanding and your continued support  – now and in the future.
