Charity shop marks 30th anniversary

Staff and volunteers at St Peter’s Hospice Clifton shop are marking the shop’s 30th anniversary.\

Nestled in the heart of Clifton village among the indie shops, cafes and the arcade on Boyces Avenue, the shop has been raising money for Bristol’s only adult hospice for three decades, providing vital funds for patient care and family support.

“The customers are so nice, and Boyces Avenue is such a lovely area to work in,” says manager, Dan Norris. “I always say that working here is like being on holiday because everyone is sat outside at the cafes and you meet so many different people of all nationalities, including tourists.

 “We’re so grateful to our supporters in Clifton as the people are so generous – they give the best donations that I’ve ever seen come into a shop. Recently, we’ve had designer items from Michael Kors, Paige, Armani, and Victoria Beckham to name a few. One man came to the till and handed me a Rolex watch as a family member of his had just gone into the Hospice and he wanted to do something to help. We sent it to eBay and it raised £3,000 for us.
