New Hospice charity shop for Hiltingbury

Hospice shop Hiltingbury

Hospice shop Hiltingbury

Hiltingbury residents no longer have to travel to Eastleigh town centre for their charity shopping as the former Hiltingbury Motors Mazda Car Showrooms on the corner of Thorold Road and Hiltingbury Road is now trading as a charity shop.

The Hospice Shop supports local Hospice’s Countess Mountbatten House in West End and the Oakhaven Hospice Trust in Lymington.

The shop is appealing for donations of unwanted items to sell and also volunteers to help run it.

Anyone who would like to help for a short time, should call in to see the manageress Ms Jan Beavis or call Rob Bush, group manager, on 023 80771159.

The premises are now back in use after a long vacancy having last been in use as a second hand car showroom.

Local residents and businesses opposed a recent unsuccessful planning application that would have seen a change of use to an American style diner.

    Hiltingbury residents never have had to travel to Eastleigh for charity shops as there is one in Fryern Arcade and another in the Mall in Chandler’s Ford.

      Crikey, things are looking up! People will be travelling from Eastleigh to shop in Chandler’s Ford!

      We are having a clear out atm and I’ll be taking some stuff up to Hospice Shop – like to help out Countess Mountbatten house.

        There is also a Hospice Shop in Eastleigh (56 Market Street). It’s clean, spacious, with lots of high quality stuff.

        I love visiting charity shops in Eastleigh – each of them carries different features, and I think the prices are quite reasonable too. I think Eastleigh is lucky to have so many good charity shops to choose from.

    There is nothing else to visit in Eastleigh except charity shops.
