A NEW retail hub, that will replace Barnsley Hospice's charity shops, opened its doors to the public today.

The Barnsley Hospice Retail Hub opened today (December 7) on Fall Bank Industrial Estate, Dodworth.

It will replace the six hospice charity shops that were forced to close due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and will sell clothes, DVDs, and homeware with all proceeds going towards Barnsley Hospice.

The store was opened by Proud of Barnsley nominee, Judy Holling, who said: “The hospice means so much to me and I like to do all I can to support it. Hospice care is very important for so many families who need it and I really hope people will come to our new Retail Hub and support us.”

The hub will be open from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Saturday.
