Elves make special delivery to Ayrshire Hospice Christmas shop

Posted on 13 September 2017 by Monika Reichelt

The hospice retail team was excited to take delivery of this year’s new hospice Christmas range this week at the Kyle Street shop in Ayr. The hospice Christmas shop is now open and showcases the new range of beautiful hospice Christmas cards, gifts and accessories.

The hospice Christmas cards are hugely popular throughout Ayrshire, generating much needed income for the hospice. This year’s stunning range is the best yet, with over 65 designs of beautiful, high quality cards, Christmas badges and the ever popular hospice calendar for 2018. The new calendar features lochs, rivers and hillsides set in stunning Ayrshire landscapes, captured by local Ayrshire photographers.  The front cover is a winning photograph taken by Gordon Stewart, featuring Dunure Castle with the most amazing skyline.

Claire Stuart-Paulin, Senior Fundraising Officer said, ‘I am like a kid at Christmas when the new Christmas cards come in.  Each one is more beautiful than the next making it very difficult to decide which ones to buy!  I also love the new range of money wallets which are perfect for those friends and family who can be difficult to buy for.’

Regular opening times are Monday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm and the shop will remain Christmas themed right through to December.  The shop has lots of festive gifts, toys, wrapping paper and gift tags – it really is your one stop shop for all things Christmas!

Shop volunteer Eleanor Clancy spoke about working in the shop, ‘I love working in the shop, it’s a fabulous place, the people are lovely and our customers are so generous.  The cards this year and beautiful, there is something for everyone and of course all the funds raised go directly to the hospice – so everyone is a winner.’
