Willowbrook Hospice to open in Kirkby Town Centre

by Emily Maguire

Preparations are well under way for Willowbrook Hospice to open the doors of their new fashion and home store in Kirkby Town Centre on Tuesday 30 April 2024.

The new fashion and home store will open in Unit 9 at the Kirkby retail development (opposite The Coffee House) from 9.00am until 4.00pm Monday to Saturday.

Willowbrook Hospice is a specialist palliative care unit based in Prescot, providing high quality care and support for patients, their families and the community and the new outlet in Kirkby will help to generate the much-needed income to provide this invaluable support to local people.

You can support your local Willowbrook outlet by donating clothing and furniture or volunteering.  Items can be dropped off during the store’s opening hours after 30 April 2024.

Volunteering opportunities are available Monday to Saturday from 9.00am until 1.00pm or from 1.00pm until 4.00pm. Volunteering at Willowbrook includes accepting donations, sorting, steaming and tagging donations, merchandising, arranging displays and providing customer services. Full training will be given as well as travel expenses and free tea and coffee for volunteers.

If you’re interested in volunteering, please apply via Willowbrook Hospice’s website – www.willowbrook.org.uk and click on the blue volunteer button at the top right hand side.  Alternatively, you can call Ian or Nicola on 01744 453798.
