Sue Ryder Comes to Wallisdown

Bargain hunters will be in their element as Sue Ryder opens a new charity shop in the retail heart of Wallisdown, on the border of Bournemouth and Poole. Shoppers keen for some budget-friendly retail therapy will be able to bag some fantastic finds at the Kinson Road store, which is located in a prime position just behind the Aldi supermarket.

Officially opening the brand new store on Friday 24th January will be the Lord Mayor of Bournemouth, Coun Dr Rodney Cooper, and the Town Crier of Poole, Mr David Squire. Doors open at 10.30am.

Sue Ryder area manager Julie Collis said: “Our fabulous new store will offer an excellent shopping experience, whether you’re looking for handbags, books, music DVDs, a vintage dress or any number of other shopping delights. Why not make it your first port of call when you arrive in town? Sue Ryder promises to be THE place to shop in Wallisdown, with proceeds going to help Sue Ryder provide specialist hospice and neurological care.”

Led by shop manager Tracy Miller, the Sue Ryder staff and volunteer team will be on hand to show shoppers around the store, which will be packed to the rafters with a great selection of quality second hand clothes, accessories, music and books as well as a wide range of new goods, including art equipment, guitars and dolls’ houses. The new shop promises to be a treasure trove of bargains, with lots of electrical items, children’s toys and a valuables cabinet full of great finds.

Julie said: “This is a really exciting retail development for Sue Ryder that will raise much needed money for hospice and neurological care. There is something for everyone and every home and I am sure shoppers will be delighted by the exceptional quality, value and wide range of goods we will be selling.”                    

Money raised from the shop will help Sue Ryder to continue to provide local expert and compassionate care to people living with end of life and long-term conditions such as cancer, stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, dementia, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and motor neurone disease.Shop manager Tracy Miller said: “We are recruiting volunteers to help with everything from sorting and preparing stock to merchandising and sales and are also appealing for people to donate good quality clothing, books and bric-a-brac.  Items can be dropped off at the shop from next Monday onwards.

“By supporting Sue Ryder in this way, local people can help us to make a real difference to the lives of the people we care for each year.
