Shoppers in and around Cobham can help children and their families who are supported by Shooting Star Children’s Hospices by shopping in our new charity shop on Cobham High Street.
The shop, which opened its doors on Monday 28 January, will be a key source of income for the leading children’s hospice charity and local residents are encouraged to donate items, volunteer and visit the shop, which is already full of pre-loved high quality items.
The Cobham shop marks the latest in two new shops which have opened for the charity in the last few months, with Battersea residents welcoming a shop on Northcote Road at the end of last year.
The new shop will also be one of the first opportunities for supporters to see our new name and updated logo.
Previously occupied by Fat Face, the space on 7 High Street, Cobham, is the charity’s 13th shop and will offer the Cobham community a boutique-style retail experience with high quality pre-loved clothes, accessories, toys and homeware.
Ruth Shaw, Area Retail Manager at Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, said: “Shooting Star Children’s Hospices receives very little financial support from the government so we rely heavily on fundraising to continue to provide a vital lifeline for families across Surrey and London – and our shops play an important role in helping us fund this service. Our new shop in Cobham will be a significant source of income for the charity and will mean that families living in and around the area, and beyond, get the support they need.
“Our shops offer the very best pre-loved items at fantastic prices. And, of course, we’re always looking for willing volunteers who’d like to offer a few hours a week as a shop assistant at any of our shops – just visit our website to find out more!
“We really are thrilled to be part of the vibrant and friendly Cobham community!”
