Our Broadmead shop manager Jenny is interviewed in today’s Bristol Post, talking about how it is a privilege to work for the Hospice:
‘With its sparkling evening dresses, suspended snowflakes and green ribbon the window is dressed to entice shoppers in from the cold to spend their hard-earned cash.
The festive display is one of many in the city centre streets competing for the attention of Christmas shoppers. The difference about this Broadmead store is that all the money that rings through the tills benefits terminally ill people across the Bristol area who are supported by St Peter’s Hospice.
At the helm of the charity shop is Jenny Wilby, as sparkly as the window display and ready with a warm welcome to all who pass through the doors of the Broadmead store.
“I wanted to just put something back into the community really,” she said.”It does make a difference and we see that from the people who come in to donate to the shop. They might say ‘this was my brother’s and he died in the hospice but the care they gave him was wonderful’.
