Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity have chosen Buckingham to launch their first ever vintage charity shop.
Lily Caswell, Head of Retail at the Charity said: “Our shop in Buckingham is a charming Grade 2 listed building, and so it seems fitting to try a vintage offer in such a lovely old building. We also know that there is a keen interest in vintage and collectable items in and around Buckingham and Winslow, so we thought this would be a good place to try our first specialist vintage shop.
“As a Charity, we are lucky to receive so many fabulous donations, including lots of vintage items such as clothes, accessories, books and collectables.
“Having had success selling vintage items in our Winslow shop, we are keen to try a specialist shop so we have the perfect place to sell all the unusual, collectable, vintage and antique pieces that we are so kindly given.
“We hope that it will become a destination for thrifters, treasure hunters and collectors looking for something special,” she added.
Florence Nightingale Hospice has served the people of Buckingham and surrounding villages for over thirty years, and provides specialist care for those with advanced disease for which curative treatment is no longer an option. The emphasis of treatment is on quality of life and enabling patients to maximise the time they have left. The Charity recently extended its service in North Buckinghamshire with an enhanced hospice at home team called FNH@Home to support those patients who wish to spend their final days in their own homes.
The new Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity Shop is located on 23 Bridge Street, Buckingham, MK18 1EL and will be open 9am-5pm Thursdays to Saturdays from Thursday 15th April. The Charity is also looking for volunteers to help make the shop a success – if you would like to find out more, visit www.fnhospice.org.uk/retailvolunteer
