Hospice service Helen and Douglas House is opening a new shop and warehouse in Aylesbury.

The charity is moving its warehouse and retail offices from Oxfordshire to Broadfields Retail Park.

The new site is due to open at the former home of Stately Interiors on October 19.

Jobs will be advertised during October and there are volunteer opportunities available now. Short-term volunteers, particularly trades people are also needed to help set up the warehouse.

Lesley Gorton, the hospice’s head of retail, said: “Aylesbury is a vibrant market town and this is a great place to have our warehouse and grow our retail chain.

“We hope that local people will apply for jobs, volunteer, donate or shop with us to enjoy what we have to offer, but also to support the highly specialist care we offer families from the area.”

Helen and Douglas House cares for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions.
