Sir Trevor Brooking opens new boutique-style hospice shop to open in Loughton 

Sir Trevor Brooking formally opened Saint Francis Hospice’s new boutique-style shop in Loughton on Friday 31st May. 

The former England and West Ham legend cut the ribbon before spending time chatting with shoppers, staff and volunteers at the shop in 239 High Road, Loughton.  

“We’re very grateful to our patron, Sir Trevor Brooking, for coming along to formally open the shop and making the occasion extra special,” said Paul Newell, Head of Retail at Saint Francis Hospice.  

“We were thrilled to see so many shoppers come along on our first day to see our collection of high quality pre-loved clothing, accessories, homeware, toys and linen.

“We also have lots of well-priced new products and preloved designer brands for sale.” 

This is the first of charity’s newly designed shops which will look and feel like a boutique so shoppers can enjoy the best experience while supporting their local hospice.   

“While customers are shopping sustainably and picking up a bargain, their donations will help raise vital funds to help local people who need the hospice’s palliative and end-of-life care,” said Paul.  

This will be the charity’s 15th store in its catchment area which cares for people living in Havering, Brentwood, Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham and West Essex. 

“After the success of our store in Wanstead, we are delighted to be opening a shop in Loughton for the first time,” said Paul. 

“There is a real sense of community in Loughton and we will be part of that.  

“Saint Francis Hospice provides care and support to people in West Essex and we know so many residents in Loughton know about the hospice and have had loved ones and friends who have accessed the charity’s services.” 

The shop is grateful for any donations of new and pre-loved goods and supporters are welcome to drive to the back of the shop and drop off donations.  

If you have a few hours to spare and would like to give the gift of your time, there are lots of volunteering opportunities available in the new shop. To find out more, please visit the Saint Francis Hospice website at sfh.org.uk/volunteer.
