Behind the scenes at the Hospice Shop
The Hospice Shop reflects Marlborough Hospice Trust's vision to have a shop occupying a niche position at the top end of the local charity shops. It operates efficiently and profitably to financially support the hospice.

This success is underpinned by careful strategic planning.As Marlene, Manager of the Hospice Shop explains, “This is not a traditional ‘opportunity shop’. An ‘op shop’ is primarily set up to support those in need. Generally the price on donated items is low and directed towards helping those in need". As a ‘charity shop’, we are set up specifically to raise funds for hospice. To do this, staff seek to secure the best return from any donated article.“People on lower incomes and people who could afford to buy new, shop here," says Marlene. Staff pride themselves on a shop which is clean and well presented.“If you haven’t visited the store, please drop by and have a browse around” invites Marlene and her team. The Hospice Shop is always keen to receive good quality second hand items. It is a treasure-trove for shoppers looking for that special something for their home, wardrobe or as a gift for a friend."
