Heywood date TBC

Safety is our biggest priority for our staff, volunteers, donors and customers, therefore we have implemented the following changes:

To allow for thorough daily cleaning in the shop, safe changeover of stock, and to allow our staff to safely travel to work, our opening hours may change slightly, and this will vary from shop to shop. During these unprecedented times we’ll need your support more than ever to provide vital care to patients and their families both at the Hospice and in their own homes – so if you are able, please do bring any donations you have to our shops as and when they reopen.

Our shops will limit the number of customers allowed inside at any one time and we’ll have signage ensuring that shoppers always keep two metres apart from each other. All frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned regularly throughout the day.

Ahead of reaching the shop floor, all our stock is quarantined for 72 hours. Following the 72 hours quarantine period, all clothes are steamed and items with hard surfaces cleaned with suitable cleaning material before they reach the shop floor.

We’re rolling out card machines across all of our shops. In addition, our card machines will accept contactless transactions which includes the new, higher limit of £45 for contactless card payments.

Our changing rooms will remain closed in line with Government guidance.

To allow for thorough daily cleaning in the shop, safe changeover of stock, and to allow our staff to safely travel to work, our opening hours may change slightly, and this will vary from shop to shop. During these unprecedented times we’ll need your support more than ever to provide vital care to patients and their families both at the Hospice and in their own homes – so if you are able, please do bring any donations you have to our shops as and when they reopen.

We are currently accepting donations at our Emporium shop 10am – 2pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

We still have restricted space to accept donations to ensure we can process these safely. If we reach capacity on any of these days we will update on our social media pages

Your donations  

  • Separate your items into categories and putting into individual bags (categories  include: Clothing, Shoes, Books, Household CD's and DVD's, etc)
  • Ensure bags or boxes are well sealed.
  • Follow the instruction from Springhill staff when you arrive at the Emporium.
  • Where possible, please ensure only one person leaves the car to hand over your donation.
  • If you are already signed up for Gift Aid please attach a label to each bag or box with your Gift Aid number (if you have it), your surname, postcode and the date you are dropping the items off.
