Published in News

A TENTH St Leonard’s Hospice shop – and the second dedicated to selling furniture – has been opened in York.

It is hoped the new shop, at Number 1, Heworth Village, will build on the success of the hospice’s existing furniture store in York Road, Acomb, which opened in 1998. Like the Acomb shop, the Heworth outlet will sell good-quality furniture which has been donated to the Hospice. Shop manager Maria Aebi is hoping that local people will donate furniture to the shop, which raises funds for the work of the hospice in caring for local people and their families.

Anyone with furniture to donate should phone 01904 409152 to inquire about its suitability and to arrange collection if required.

I remember this shop being "Walter Wilsons" grocery store for many years; but it's had a lot of changes of use / owners since then. I wish St Leonard's well with this new venture.

Best wishes with the shop, but I wouldn't leave those balloons out for long, the council will deign them to be banners or advertising of some sort and send round one of their stab vested, clipboard toting yellow jacketed idiots to fine you. Terry Smith got fined ten years turnover of £2000 recently.
