MP backs Heathrow protestors in court
Campaigners deny aggravated trespass charge
MICHAEL Sobell Hospice has given its Ruislip store a makeover and is celebrating with a winter promotion.
The charity shop in Ruislip High Street was given a ‘vibrant interior and exterior’ revamp to match the new corporate branding of its recently opened sister shop in Eastcote.
It has a new sign, new lights and flooring, and has been completely redecorated.
Elaine Howell, Ruislip shop manager, said: “We hope that our existing local customers will enjoy the new look shop and hope to attract some new shoppers to browse our wide range of items for sale.”
The makeover was carried out by a team of local tradesmen and volunteers to keep costs down.
Richard Haines, retail trustee at the hospice, said: “We are delighted with the new shop makeover.
“Thanks to the help of local tradesmen and our volunteers, it has achieved all of our objectives and within the tight deadline and budget constraints.”
The shop is holding a winter promotion until the end of the month selling a good range of quality winter essentials including coats, footwear and accessories.
The public can donate goods into the shop or the charity can collect if you call 0203 826 2367. For a full list of acceptable items see www.michael sobellhospice.co.uk
