The Ayrshire Hospice has opened a shop in Dockhead Street, Saltcoats.

Chair of Ayrshire Hospice Board of Directors, Sheena Cochrane had the honour of cutting the ribbon at the opening event: Ms Cochrane said: “Our shops play a huge role in generating much needed funds for the hospice. Last year they represented our fourth highest fundraising stream contributing significantly to our ability to provide excellent care to our patients and their families. We are extremely grateful for the continuous support our shops receive from our local communities, as we rely on it hugely.”

The Saltcoats shop interior has been furnished with upcycled furniture donated by supporters saving the hospice team money, as well as giving the shop a very special, boutique feel. Susan Tierney, the Saltcoats shop manager is excited to meet all the new customers and is looking forward to showcasing the vast array of items the Saltcoats shop has to offer.

The Hospice welcomes volunteers, and anyone who would like to get involved can get further details on the Ayrshire Hospice Website.

The Saltcoats shop is open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.
