Worthing hospice charity shop and wedding boutique celebrates 30th birthday

Tuesday 19 February 2019

Worthing shops 30th birthday celebrationsStaff, volunteers, customers and guests at the Worthing St Barnabas House hospice shop, celebrated the shop’s 30th birthday with a party on Valentine’s Day.

Among the guests on this romantic day, was St Barnabas House Vice President and local celebrity DJ, Ambrose Harcourt, also known as ‘Mr Lurve’. We were pleased that The Deputy Mayor of Worthing, Councillor Hazel Thorpe also joined us, along with our hospice mascot, Barnabee. As it was Valentine’s Day, we had volunteers modelling items from the shop’s Wedding Boutique.

Head of Retail, Jan Harper said: “The Worthing shop was our first St Barnabas House shop. In the last year our incredible team of volunteers processed and sold over 25,000 items that had been generously donated by the community. The profit made by the shop last year would pay for 4 days of all care services provided by St Barnabas House”.

“We’d like to thank everyone who came along to help us celebrate and make it such an enjoyable event.”

We could not run our shops without the volunteers who provide outstanding support to our shop teams. One of our many volunteers joining us on the day was Julie Humphrey, who has been with us for 30 years. Julie started as a volunteer when the shop first opened and then became assistant manager. After retiring, she stayed on as a volunteer and has been with us ever since.

The shop at 11 Rowlands Road, has a popular Wedding Boutique situated upstairs, stocking over 200 new and pre-loved wedding dresses in various sizes, at prices to suit everyone. We are currently looking for volunteers to help brides find their dream dress. If you are interested, please pop into the shop for a chat, or call 01903 706315 or email volunteers@stbh.org.uk
