Grand opening of eleventh Ayrshire Hospice shop in Saltcoats

Posted on 7 March 2017 by Monika Reichelt

We are delighted to extend our highly successful retail network with the opening of an 11th shop, in Saltcoats on Friday 17th February at 43-45 Dockhead Street.

Chair of Ayrshire Hospice Board of Directors, Sheena Cochrane cut the ribbon to open the shop and said a few words about the importance of the hospice retail network:

“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.
