A HOSPICE boutique shop has reopened after three weeks of re-styling and now looks fresher.

Visitors to Clitheroe’s East Lancashire Hospice shop will be in for a treat when the shop reopens on Friday 1 March at 10am.

The Moor Lane shop, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in September, closed for three weeks while essential electrical maintenance was carried out.

Dawn Neary, Retail Manager, said: “The shop has been given a lick of paint and has a much more modern, inviting feel. We’re looking forward to welcoming shoppers in and showing off our new, exciting shop.”

Staffed by volunteers, the shop sells a wide range of items donated by supporters including womenswear and menswear.

The main purpose of the shop is to raise funds for the hospice and all proceeds help to pay for the essential services provided by East Lancashire Hospice for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families in Blackburn, Darwen, Hyndburn and Ribble Valley.
