Snap up cam­eras at hos­pice’s eBay shop

Re­launched online store in need of more vol­un­teers

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Camilla Good­man camilla.good­man@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

A HOS­PICE has re­launched its online eBay shop in a bid to boost funds, but it needs help from vol­un­teers to run it.

South Bucks Hos­pice has re­cently re­launched the shop, which sells a wide range of col­lectibles, elec­tron­ics, jew­ellery and cloth­ing, with all the prof­its be­ing ploughed back into pa­tient care at the hos­pice.

The hos­pice’s e-com­merce trad­ing man­ager Leanne Cooper said: “The ad­van­tage of cre­at­ing a new eBay store is that peo­ple can help our char­ity and pur­chase some re­ally in­ter­est­ing items all from the com­fort of their homes.

“There are cur­rently some vintage film cam­eras on sale that may re­ally catch the imag­i­na­tion of some buy­ers.

“We know, how­ever, that the in­ter­net is not for ev­ery­body, so that’s why we also have five tra­di­tional re­tail shops in towns around the South Bucks area.

“But eBay pro­vides the public with a dif­fer­ent and per­haps more con­ve­nient op­tion.

“It’s worth peo­ple not­ing that when they list on eBay as a pri­vate seller, they can choose to do­nate a per­cent­age of the sale to South Bucks Hos­pice.

“So ev­ery time you list an item and choose to do­nate to us, you’ll get a free credit. For ex­am­ple, if you do­nate 50 per cent of your selling price to South Bucks Hos­pice, eBay will waive 50 per cent of your fees.”

South Bucks Hos­pice pro­vides ex­pert ser­vices to lo­cal peo­ple with in­cur­able ill­nesses, lym­phoedema suf­fer­ers and those with chronic ill­nesses.

It aims to pro­vide the best pos­si­ble qual­ity of life and care wher­ever pos­si­ble at the early, mid or late term stage of the end of life.
