A CHARITY shop, raising money for children with life-limiting illnesses, opened in Stevenage today (Friday) and an appeal is being made for volunteers and donations.

Keech Cottage Children's Hospice has opened its first shop in the town, located on Queensway, and is relying on the support of volunteers to carry out a variety of roles such as customer service, creating window displays, and sorting and steaming stock.

Even if you can only volunteer one morning a week, the hospice wants to hear from you.

If you are unable to give your time to help, the shop also needs donations of saleable clothes, furniture, household items and other desirable goods. Home collection of any large donations can be arranged.

To keep its services running this year, the hospice needs �2.5million - 75 per cent of which is raised through support from the community.

If you would like to volunteer, call the shop on 01438 314598.
