The Rennie Grove Hospice Care charity – one to support this Christmas

Spread the love


The aim of this remarkable charity to is to provide palliative and end of life care based around the patients and their families – at home – day and night.

I know several who have had their relatives cared for in this way and the Rennie Grove palliative care team has made an unbearable situation, bearable.

Here in Downley, we have one of their charity shops. Under the auspices of manager, Jo, ably assisted by Lucy and a team of volunteers, it is a sight for sore eyes. The window displays are always spot on, and the donated goods are of the highest quality. And the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I am frequently to be found there, taking a break from writing my latest novel, and poking about, finding gems.

Do not forget to use charity shops this year. People say they can’t afford Christmas, but perhaps they can if they stick their heads into their local charity shops. They are so often Aladdin’s Caves, and while you’re choosing, don’t forget that you are helping those in need.
