Cantilupe Road Charity Shop Celebrates Birthday

Popular St Michael's Hospice charity shop in Ross-on-Wye celebrates its first birthday

This popular shop in Ross-on-Wye first opened its doors in May 2023.

On Thursday (9th May 2024), we celebrated the first birthday of our Cantilupe Road charity shop in Ross-on-Wye.

The shop team were joined for a slice of birthday cake by customers who shared well wishes and shopped for great pre-loved finds.

Linda Keene, Shop Manager at Cantilupe Road said:

“Our shop has been open for a year today. In that time, we have been extremely lucky to grow a dedicated team of staff members and absolutely amazing volunteers. These individuals, plus the generous donors who drop off lots of wonderful donations, have helped this shop go from strength to strength.

“I have been lucky enough to have been the Manager for this fabulous store since the early stages, as we prepared it for opening, and feel very privileged to play a small part in supporting such a worthwhile charity that has supported my family and many more.”

Since its opening, we are proud to share that this shop has raised just shy of £192,000 for St Michael’s Hospice – vital funds that help us continue to provide essential care for patients and their families living with terminal illness.
