St Benedict’s Hospice has a number of shops that raise money to support patient care and we welcome donations of good quality second-hand items and unused items that we can sell.
We have a fabulous Bistro Café in the Hospice where you can enjoy a range of coffees and other refreshments along with a tasty snack. The Bistro Café is open daily to the public so if you are passing please pop in.
Also at the hospice we have a lovely little gift shop. So if you are looking for a present for someone special please come and see – you’re sure to find something different at a great price.
We have 4 traditional charity shops that are open 6 days a week. Jam packed with clothing, accessories, ornaments and many, many other items, they are the place to go to grab a bargain knowing that at the same time you will be helping the charity to support patients and families in the Hospice. You will find these shops at 54-56 Sea Road, Fulwell, Sunderland SR6 9BX (Telephone 0191 549 6285); 137 Chester Road, Sunderland SR4 7HS (0191 300 6580) ;13 Front Street, Hetton le Hole, Tyne & Wear DH5 9PE (Telephone 0191 520 9666) and at 39 Newbottle Street, Houghton le Spring DH4 4AP (Telephone 0191 917 1232).
We also have a great quality used furniture store at 92 Ryhope Street South, Ryhope, Sunderland SR2 0AB (Telephone 0191 523 8565), where you can grab bargains for the whole home. There are a wide range of furnishings available along with bric a brac and other homewares.
We welcome donations of good quality items and we can arrange collection if necessary. However there are a number of items we can't accept for legal and health & safety reasons. If you would like to find out more contact us.
If you pay UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax your donations to our charity shops could be worth even more if you agree to complete a Retail Gift Aid Form when you donate your items. By completing this you will be agreeing to allow St Benedict's Hospice to act as an agent to sell your goods on your behalf and when the items are sold we will then be able to claim Gift Aid on the net proceeds. This means that for every £10 we raise from the sale of your items we will actually receive £12.50, all at no cost to yourself. To find out more contact us or ask in the shops when you donate your goods.
We offer a range of services which provide support for patients 24 hours a day.
We offer a range of education and training opportunities to NHS and non-NHS staff.
