Our Charity Shops
In light of the current situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are working to the latest guidance from Public Health England and the NHS. In some instances, we are taking additional precautions to safeguard our patients, families, carers and our workforce. Our focus remains on providing outstanding Hospice care. In light of this we have decided to cancel our collections, deliveries and house clearances as an additional precaution.
Some of our shops are now open and you can find out which and when HERE. We hope to open more shops gradually and will update the page when this happens.
We will continue to remain up to date with the latest guidance from the NHS and Public Health England and wish to reassure you that Hospice in the Weald is well prepared for further implications of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We will be in touch as soon as we can to rearrange your slots if you have already booked in with us. Thank you for your help and support.

Each morning, come rain or shine, our loyal teams of enthusiastic volunteers, supported by a Shop Manager, open the doors to the 21 Hospice in the Weald charity shops and 5 furniture shops located throughout our catchment area of West Kent and East Sussex. Each shop prides itself on delivering consistently great quality donated goods, at sensible prices and the level of service you would expect from a High Street shop. The money raised by our shops contributes significantly to the £7 million needed each and every year to continue to provide our vital services to patients, families and carers. In fact we generate more income through our charity shops than we receive in Government funding.
We like to think of our charity shops as mini department stores with something for everyone. We sell high quality, pre-loved goods for your wardrobe, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, garden and so much more. You'll be amazed at the items you can find in our shops from high-end fashion to beautiful pieces of jewellery, all kindly donated by the local community.
There are so many ways to support us, but today you can enjoy more, starting right now, when you sign up for Your Hospice Card. We really value our customers, that's why we want to start rewarding you. By purchasing those great bargains & treasures in our shops you're helping to make a difference. So think of Your Hospice Card as a little thank you from us. Find out more about the CLICK HERE
Our first adventures in retail began almost 40 years ago with a small mobile shop. The mobile shop proved so popular with local residents that by popular demand a permanent shop was opened in 1985 on Camden Road in Tunbridge Wells. As time progressed and Hospice in the Weald grew so too did the number of shops, present day finds us with 26 shops and maybe a few more in the pipeline... We’ve come a long way in the last 40 years and we would not have been able to achieve all we do without our hardworking and dedicated staff and volunteers, not forgetting our loyal customers who continue to shop with us.
