St Catherine’s Hospice runs 18 shops across the three boroughs of Chorley, Preston and South Ribble, including the gift shops on-site at the hospice and The Mill. We also operate a Donation Centre at the hospice where people can drop-off items for distribution across the area.
They generate vital income to help raise the £5.2m we need each year to be able to deliver our specialised care for local people.
Not only that, they also provide a valuable presence for the charity within the communities we serve – raising awareness of St Catherine’s amongst the local people who live there.
Supporting our shops is one of the easiest ways you can help St Catherine’s – whether through donating your pre-loved items or recyclables, or visiting one of our stores to treat yourself to something ‘new-to-you’.
It’s important to add that our shops simply could not survive without the help of more than 300 wonderful volunteers, who give their time freely to support us.
