We’re delighted to announce that a new City Hospice shop is open in Rhiwbina
A new City Hospice shop opens in Rhiwbina this week. The store has been officially opened by one of our ambassadors, Cardiff Blues and Wales rugby star Ellis Jenkins, and West End star Sophie Evans.
Our charity’s new store on Heol y Deri, Rhiwbina features clothing, accessories, crafts and homewares. The City Hospice team will be active members of the local community, engaging with our supporters and offering a range of quality items to our customers.
Our new store has been warmly welcomed by the local community of Rhiwbina
and will encourage more people to support our charity. Every sale we make will help us to provide essential palliative care to people throughout Cardiff.
At City Hospice we’re Cardiff’s local hospice, providing nursing and clinical support to people at the end of their lives. Additionally, we offer counselling and support services for the families of our patients. The only provider of home-based specialist palliative care in the capital, at City Hospice we provide care and compassion to 550 patients at any one time
Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, we are proud to continue to deliver patient services to those affected with life limiting illness in the community.
On the day the City Hospice shop opens in Rhiwbina Liz Andrews, Chief Executive, tell us:
“Like many charities, it’s a difficult time. Our fundraising activities are significantly reduced, and yet more people in our community need our services. And so we are adapting and developing new ways to respond to patient needs and raise funds.
“With this in mind, it is my great pleasure to announce that we have opened our brand new pop-up store in the village of Rhiwbina, in Cardiff. To be able to open a new store during these times is testament to the level of dedication of our staff, volunteers and supporters.”
We are grateful for the support of the local community and everyone who has helped set our shop up. We are especially grateful to our landlord Gary Powling, Managing Director of Millfield Wealth Management.
“I am delighted to help City Hospice by welcoming them to my shop in Rhiwbina.
I have long been a supporter of the charity having trekked to Machu Picchu for them five years ago. They do vital work caring for patients in this area and the whole of Cardiff.”
Our shop is open Monday to Saturday 9am-5pm. We can’t wait to see you soon!
