Hospice shops help shoppers on a budget this Christmas

With Christmas shoppers out in force along high streets across the region East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices shops are calling out for people who are not looking to stretch their Christmas budget.


EACH has 16 shops across East Anglia selling good quality donated items at reasonable prices. Most popular items for sale include good quality clothes for all ages, toys, modern books and small electrical items – all ideal for Christmas gifts and stocking fillers!

Gabrielle Spray, EACH Head of Retail, said: “Christmas is an expensive time of year, with office parties, socialising  and, of course, shopping for presents! Many of our shops turn into Aladdin’s caves at their time of year as people have a generously donate items in the run up to the festive season. All of our EACH shops sell quality items, ideal if you’re doing Christmas on a budget. A lot of the clothes we have donated have never been worn and our customers often pick up real bargains.”

The charities shops have also been getting in the festive spirit with some elaborate window displays. The EACH shop in Halstead, Suffolk (pictured) is the perfect example and has received lots of compliments from customers and passers by about the festive display.
