Just two doors down but worlds apart – Weldmar’s new look charity shop at Lodmoor in Weymouth opens
4th August 2022< BACK TO NEWS
Weldmar Hospicecare has opened the doors of it’s new look charity shop at Lodmoor in Weymouth.
Just two doors down from the shop’s previous location on Dorchester Road, the new premises is three times the size, and will allow the shop to take more donations and attract more shoppers – all of which helps the charity raise more funds to provide specialist end of life care in Dorset for adults with a life limiting illness.
It also provides a more sustainable shopping experience in the area, as an alternative to fast fashion and giving items a new lease of life rather than going to landfill.
The site has increased space for shoppers to browse fashion and accessories, plus books, games, entertainment, and household items, and there are also displays around the shop to show local people more about the work of Weldmar Hospicecare and how their custom makes a difference.
The first customer was Toby, who purchased a Furby toy that he spotted in the window.
