“Working as the Shops Development Manager, it is my role to support and motivate the teams in 18 shops, to achieve the best results possible for Hospiscare.
Hospiscare shops are ever evolving, bustling and vibrant parts of the community. My career with Hospiscare started with the management of the Honiton store alongside a fantastic team.
It is a joy to come to work, knowing that your efforts help to raise vital funds to support local people when they need it most.”
Hospiscare has 20 charity shops in Exeter, Mid & East Devon located in the communities in which we deliver care and support for those living with terminal illnesses.
The shops on the high street raise vital funds to enable Hospiscare to continue its work and provide important links to the community.
As of June 21st Hospiscare will have 2 Warehouse Shops. One in Trusham Road, Marsh Barton and one in Dowell Street, Honiton. The warehouse shops sell everything from furniture and refurbished electricals to birthday cards, records and clothes. They are a treasure trove for our customers!
We have a thriving online business which generates much needed funds for Hospiscare. We sell donated goods on ebay, amazon and other platforms to get best value for the donations we receive. Over the last 3 years we have seen this part of the business grow considerably and we now employ more than 7 people in the team.
We have an award winning House Clearance business which either partly or fully clears people’s homes, leaving them fully cleaned and spotless. The donations we receive are then sold in the shops, warehouses or online to raise funds for Hospiscare.
