Our Shops

 

Our shops 

Our shops and warehouse are now closed to the public due to the latest coronavirus lockdown restrictions to help keep everyone safe. Thank you for all your support and donations during the last year.  We really appreciate you helping to raise funds for our hospice care in this way.
Donations
Please note we will not be able to accept donations at this time, and please do not leave any donation bags or boxes outside our shops or at our warehouse. We will update you as soon as we know when we can reopen.

If you’d like to give an item of furniture, follow this link to arrange a collection. Please do not take furniture to a shop.  Due to current lockdown restrictions and reduced staffing we are not able to collect furniture immediately. We would appreciate you holding onto items for the moment if possible, otherwise we will do our best to arrange staffing for collections when there are sufficient numbers of items in specific areas. Thank you for your understanding.

 

About our shops

St Richard’s Hospice has shops based across Worcestershire selling a wide variety of goods which have been donated by the generous public.

Our shops consist of furniture shops which also sell electrical items; a dedicated book shop which has approximately 15,000 books on show from paperbacks to rare collectables; a dress agency come high end designer quality clothing, antiques, and bric a-brac, and a cafe situated at our St Swithins street store alongside books and clothing etc and general charity shops offering a wide variety of women’s and men’s clothing – all supported by over 350 volunteers.

We always need volunteers to help in our shops so if you feel you can help in any way either speak directly to the staff at the shop who will ask you to fill in a form, or phone 01905 763963 and ask to speak to our Volunteer Department.

We would love to hear your feedback on our shops, please complete a short customer service survey.

We’ve gone plastic bag free

At St Richard’s Hospice, we take our responsibility to the environment seriously. That’s why we no longer use plastic bags in our shops.

Please bring your own bags, or purchase one of our reusable bags in store.

We hope this small change will help make a big difference to the environment. Thank you for your understanding.

Gift Aid for the Shops

We encourage all donors who are UK tax payers to Gift Aid the items they give to our shops. 

This means, with the donor’s permission, we can 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.

If you are a 40% taxpayer, at the end of the financial tax year you can claim the difference between the 25% and 40% either for yourself or donate to charity.

You can sign up for Gift Aid in our shops. We will issue you with a card bearing your unique Gift Aid Donor ID barcode. If you have previously registered for Gift Aid your old five or six digit number will be replaced by this new barcode. 

Please bring this card with you when donating items, so we can identify them and claim from HMRC. At the end of each financial year, we will write to you with the figure raised by selling your items, and the total we can reclaim in Gift Aid.

Should any of your circumstances change, please let us know. You can email customerservices@strichards.org.uk or write to us at The Commercial Department, St Richard’s Hospice, Wildwood Drive, Worcester, WR5 2QT.

We currently have thousands of donors signed up for shop Gift Aid and are raising around £180,000 a year from this scheme. As you will appreciate this is an excellent way of gaining extra funds for the hospice. Please help us to continue for many years to come.
