Garden House Hospice Care's Junior House, based in the Oval, Stevenage, opened for the first time with support from Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland and Mayor, Councillor Jim Brown. Crowds cheered to the cutting of the ribbon as they eagerly awaited their turn to shop.
Stephen McPartland MP commented, “It’s brilliant to see the Garden House Hospice Care shops reopening today. They provide vital services for the local community.
“Their catchphrase is ‘Started by the community, serving the community, sustained by the community’ – what they do is incredible so please do come down, spend some money and support your local Garden House Hospice Care shop.”
The income raised through Garden House Hospice Care’s 12 stores and Distribution Centre is vital in raising a third of what it takes to pay for essential palliative and end of life care services for local families.
