The Warkworth Hospice Shop is very clean and well organised. It’s down an alleyway off Queen St. Items are priced at the top-end of the second-hand market so there’s no rock-bottom bargins to be found like at the less well organised charity shops. And that’s understandable as hospice stores must turn a profit because palative care is expensive. You may pay more for an item than at other charity shops but you know where your money is going. It’s worth a visit especially when the store has a half-price sale.
The store has plenty of support locally, so people I’ve spoken to always think of leaving valuable unwanted items with hospice b4 they’d drop stuff at the other charity shops.
The Warkworth Wellsford Hospice runs an annual wearable arts-type fundraiser called Catwalk Arts. I’m going to enter this year as my beautiful daughter loves to dress up and and parade along the catwalk. She’s been a competitor in this fundraiser before. Once the entry closing date is passed, I’ll blog about my 1950’s-inspired opshop design.
