Our new shop in Battle

Hospice in the Weald has announced it has opened a new retail shop in Battle High Street to celebrate the launch of its new service for children. This will not only be the Hospice’s 30th shop, but the first Hospice in the Weald for Children store and the first time the organisation has opened a shop in Battle.

Hospice in the Weald provides care completely free of charge to patients with a terminal illness, and those important to them in northern East Sussex and Kent but is now extending this to include a new free children’s service for local families offering home visits and emotional support.

The newly decorated store will sell a range of new and pre-loved adult and children’s merchandise from clothes, toys, books and bric-a-brac to Christmas cards and festive goodies.

Sharon Gills, Hospice in the Weald’s Head of Retail, said:

“We’re thrilled to open a new shop in Battle next to the historic Abbey. Proceeds will not only support our work caring for adults facing terminal illness and their loved ones but now, for the first time, children with life limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families too. I’m so proud of the team that’s helped to make this dream a reality.

“We’re looking forward to getting to know local people who we hope will support us by volunteering, donating good quality items and most importantly, by visiting our lovely new shop which is perfect for those on the hunt for bargains and treasures that won’t hurt the bank balance!”

Nick Farthing, Hospice Chief Executive, added: “Over 40 years of expertise will underpin the new Hospice in the Weald for Children, offering care and support for children or young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions from birth or the point of diagnosis and beyond. Families of children with complex health needs often feel isolated and we are hoping to help bridge this gap. The new store is a welcome addition to help support this vision.”

Opening hours are 9.30am-5pm, Monday – Saturday, closed Sunday.
