December 11th, 2013 by Les Bourgs Hospice

Les Bourgs Hospice has opened up a third charity shop but it will only be open until the 20 December 2013.

The temporary pop-up shop in the former Jones & Bradburn building in the Industrial Estate on Braye Road will be open from 9 am until 4 pm from Monday to Saturday until Friday 20 December 2013.

“We have some lovely items for sale which would make fantastic Christmas presents as well as some quality clothing which is perfect for parties,” said Trish De Carteret, Les Bourgs Hospice fundraising administrator.

“Having a third shop means that it is easier for people to come in and have a look,” she said.

“It also means that we will create more space as January is always a really busy time for our shop in Mont Arrive and the children’s shop on The Bridge as generous islanders tend to donate things to make room for the gifts they have received at Christmas,” Trish De Carteret said.
