Excitement is building for the grand opening of a brand new St Richard’s Hospice shop in Kidderminster.
The spacious premises, spanning two floors, can be found at 17-18 High Street and is due to throw open its doors to the public on Saturday 4th November at 9.30am.
Along with clothing, varied bric-a-brac, CDs, DVDs and more – there will be an impressive collection of around 12,000 books for literature-lovers to browse.
The beautifully fitted St Richard’s shop in Kidderminster is the latest addition to the Worcestershire charity’s growing portfolio of stores.
The premises were carefully chosen for their excellent location in the heart of Kidderminster and will help raise awareness of the charity – which supports patients from the area at its In-patient Unit in Worcester.
Currently, the hospice has 17 shops and a warehouse spread across the county – spanning towns in north Worcestershire including Bewdley and Stourport, right down to Broadway in the picturesque Cotswolds.
Thanks to our staff, volunteers and customers, each year the hospice sells around 205,000 items of clothing, 85,000 items of bric-a-brac, 90,000 books and 7,000 items of furniture.
This goes a tremendous way towards helping St Richard’s fund its compassionate, free care to patients living with life-limiting illnesses, their families and bereaved people across the county.

Chance to volunteer at new shop
Following the great news that a new St Richard’s shop is coming to town, the hospice is now on the look-out for community-spirited volunteers to help staff the store.
Volunteering in our shops can be an extremely varied and rewarding experience as there is a whole range of areas to work in – from manning the till to creating eye-catching window displays and sorting and pricing the many donations.
For many volunteers, the experience they gain working in the hospice’s shops benefits them in the long-term – with previous volunteers going on to secure permanent work in the retail sector with skills learned as a volunteer.
