Newest Hospice Shop opens its doors for Glasgow’s youngsters


The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice has opened its newest Hospice Shop, and this time it’s only for the kids.

Set in the bustling shopping centre in Govan, the shop is in addition to the existing Hospice Shop already a firm favourite in Govan Cross Shopping Centre.

Hospice Shop Kids opened its doors on Wednesday 27 March to lots of excited children and their parents, eager to experience the colourful interior with lots of amazing items to purchase.

The Shop is well stocked with bargain kids’ accessories such as high chairs and cots as well as clothing from brands such as Boden, Zara, H+M, River Island, Ted Baker, Mayoral and much more, including a vast choice of brand-new baby clothes with the tags still attached.

Kids will also be able to enjoy a reading corner with a table and chairs to allow them to peruse the book selection. And for those eager to find out their height, the Shop has its own height checker.

The Shop is colourfully decorated throughout with rainbow wallpaper and splashes of colours on the walls.  

Angela Renton, Retail Operations Manager for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, said: “We’re very excited to open our very first kids Hospice Shop. We get so many donations from our amazing supporters of really high-quality clothing and accessories; this shop is bound to become a destination shop for parents looking to pick up a bargain.

“Kids grow so quickly that it makes perfect sense for parents to buy pre-owned clothing for their kids and get the most out of it before they outgrow it. We know there is a huge appetite out there for sustainable pre-loved clothing which is also good quality and we’re delighted to be able to offer it all from our one-stop-shop The Hospice Shop Kids.”

The new shop is situated in Govan Cross Shopping Centre, G51 3JW. It’s open Monday to Saturday 9am until 5pm. The shop is also asking people to donate any of their unwanted kids clothing and accessories and these would be very gratefully received.

The new shop is part of a network of 17 Hospice Shops situated throughout the Greater Glasgow area from as far away as Kirkintilloch to Clarkston. The Hospice Shops play an essential role in raising funds for hospice care, contributing to the comfort and well-being of patients facing life-limiting illnesses.

The shops generate much-needed funding for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice which cares for 1200 new patients and their families every year.

The hospice must fundraise approximately £3million each year to continue providing this care, free of charge to those who need it, and the Hospice Shops contribute approximately £500,000 to this.
