The new store in St Swithin’s Street, Worcester is an innovative move for the Shops and Commercial Dept of the charity and will offer customers a clothing store on the ground floor and a bookshop and café above.
Dan Corns explained, “We are very excited about opening the new store and I’m sure our loyal customers and our new ones will enjoy shopping there. We are combining two of our current shops leading to increased savings on rents and this will ensure our long term sustainable presence in Worcester city centre.”
He added, “The move to this site has been planned for some time based on our successful trading history and long term business aims. Thanks to our generous donors, the St Richard’s Hospice Trading Company has turned over £2m this year, helping to fund St Richard’s care for patients and supporting families.”
“It’s a new departure for us to run a café with light refreshments which will sit well alongside the bookstore.”
Dan Corns explained that there were also pilot plans to set up drop-in information sessions for patients in the new large building, making good use of the facilities for St Richard’s.
The store will be run by a shop manager and volunteers and will raise funds towards the charity’s work caring for patients with life-threatening illness and supporting their families. There are now 18 St Richard’s charity shops and a large warehouse in the county.Address:13/14 St Swithins StreetWorcesterWR1 2PSTel: 01905 616353Opening Hours:Mon - Saturday 9.00 - 5.30pmSunday 10.30 - 4.30pmIf you are interested in volunteering at this shop and would like more information please click How do I become a volunteer?
St Richard’s Hospice has opened a shop a little way down from the Cross in Worcester, formerly Blacks outdoor wear.
We are offering one of the largest selections of charity shop clothing to be found in Worcester. This is a temporary shop but we hope to be open for a minimum of six to twelve months. We sell ladies, mens and childrens fashion and we have, thanks to a large donation, over 300 bridal dresses, prom dresses and accessories at the rear of the shop so if you are planning a wedding in the coming year now would be the time to find a bargain of a lifetime. Once these dresses have gone they are not to be repeated.

We encourage all donors, who are UK tax payers, when bringing items into our shops to take up the opportunity to Gift Aid them. This means that with the donor's permission we are able to use
the proceeds from the sale of the donated goods and treat them as Gift Aid donations to St Richard’s Hospice. Currently for every £1 qualifying donation received we can claim repayment
from HMRC of 25 pence.
On completing and signing a Gift Aid Declaration form we will issue you with your unique donor ID number. Please quote this number when taking donations to any of our St Richard’s Hospice
Shops and this will enable us to track your item so that we can make a claim from HMRC. We will keep you informed of how much your items raise for the Hospice.
Since starting Gift Aid through our shops we now have over 15,000 donors and have been able to claim a staggering amount of nearly £300,000 for St Richard’s Hospice.
