Evesham High Street (temporarily closed)

 

Notice to our customers and supporters – 24th March 2020

With a heavy heart, we have taken the decision to temporarily close our shop in Evesham, along with all 18 other shops and our warehouse in Worcestershire. This is to protect staff, volunteers, donors and customers from the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

We have the most fantastic support from the people of Worcestershire and we very much look forward to welcoming everyone back when the government advises it is safe to open our doors once again.

In the mean-time, we are kindly asking our supporters not to leave donations outside our shops. We are also suspending all furniture and other donation collections for the time being.

You can read our full statement here. Thank you for your patience and understanding at this difficult time.

Furniture and homeware is available in our Evesham High Street store, so why not pop along and have a browse and give your home a refreshing look for spring.  Our store is open Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm.  If you would like to make a donation of furniture please call the shop on 01386 442921 and ask to speak to Jo-Ann to arrange collection.

Our shop also sells ladies fashion and bric-a-brac and now includes an area dedicated to vintage and retro.

The basement has been turned into a vast bookstore known as the Book Cellar and holds over six thousand books for you to browse through.

If you have recently visited one of our shops we should be grateful if you would complete our short customer service survey, thank you.

If you have a few hours to spare and are able to volunteer please contact our volunteer department on 01905 763963

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.

Latest changes at St Richard’s Hospice

  • In-patient Unit: It is with great sadness that due to stringent infection control measures, we are required to restrict visiting and cannot offer the comprehensive level of service in the way we usually do. However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate. Read the full details here.
  • Community Nursing: Community services continue to operate, with a mixture of hands-on care and remote support.
  • Living Well and Family Support Services: Switched to virtual model, with care given remotely over the phone or via video call.
  • Shops: All 19 of our shops and warehouse are temporarily closed. Please do not leave donations outside our shops, as we are unable to collect them at this time.
  • Fundraising: All hospice organised events until the end of August have been postponed. If you wish to support us, please donate to our Resilience Fund.

Please do not visit St Richard’s Hospice if you have a high temperature or new, continuous cough. If you have these symptoms, please stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. See NHS advice on coronavirus.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.
