Royal Trinity Hospice shops have launched an urgent appeal for stock donations. Since reopening in April, Trinity’s shops have had a series of record-breaking weeks as fans of preloved fashion have returned to update their wardrobes for the new season.

Royal Trinity Hospice is the local hospice for south west and central London. They provide free specialist palliative and end of life care for people living in Wandsworth and parts of Lambeth, Merton, Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Richmond.

All their services are free of charge to patients and their families. This year, They need to raise over £9million to deliver outstanding care, and supplement the funds they receive from the NHS. They rely on donations and now, as many people are getting their wardrobes summer-ready, the charity is calling on its local community to help keep their shops stocked. It specifically needs quality men’s and women’s fashion and accessories.

Daniel Holloway, Director of Retail at Trinity said:

“Since reopening in April the response from our customers has been phenomenal. After a year of such uncertainty for the hospice, it is fantastic that our shops have enjoyed so much support.

Now we are asking our community to help us sustain that success by donating their quality preloved goods – we’re especially looking for menswear, womenswear, and accessories.

Royal Trinity Hospice’s shops play a major role in funding our expert care and we rely on generous donations from our supporters to keep them full of great stock. Not only do your donations enable us to care for everyone who needs us in our community, donating your preloved goods is the best thing to do for the planet as well.”
