BARNSLEY Hospice’s charity shops which closed their doors this month following financial difficulties are set to renovate the Dodworth donation centre into a retail hub.

The hospice made the announcement earlier in the month that each of its six charity shops across the borough will be forced to close.

However from December, the Dodworth donation centre will be revamped into a retail hub so people are able to shop for leftover goods.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Hospice said: “This is some good news. The donation centre will still be accepting donations through November whilst it is being revamped.”

More details are set to be released soon.
