LOCAL HOSPICE BRINGS FIRST STORE TO BOROUGHBRIDGE

This May, a local charity is set to welcome shoppers at a brand new retail destination in the historic town of Boroughbridge.

Saint Michael’s, the local hospice care charity supporting families affected by terminal illness and bereavement across the district, is set to add to its existing 11 community shops with its very first Boroughbridge store, which opens its doors on
Thursday May 16.

The shop, located at 38 High Street, Boroughbridge, promises to be a bright, welcoming space, showcasing the high-quality preloved items Saint Michael’s stores have become well-known for across the district.

The new premises will stock nearly-new high street, vintage and designer label clothing, along with a variety of shoes and accessories, as well as antiques, homeware, toys, and books.

Tony Collins, chief executive of Saint Michael’s, said: “We’re excited to offer shoppers of Boroughbridge a rewarding retail experience, where every penny and pound spent will be put to use locally, helping us to offer vital care to families right
here in our community.  “Saint Michael’s stores are not only known for their high-quality, preloved items, welcoming environments and friendly volunteers and staff, but raise an amazing £1million each year to help the charity provide vital care.

“As our services grow and reach out to more people in their own homes at the end of their lives, we can only continue to care thanks to the support of our community.”

The store is looking for friendly, enthusiastic volunteers to join the team, and Saint Michael’s is keen to hear from anyone interested in finding out more.
