Cam­paign­ers deny ag­gra­vated tres­pass charge

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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
