The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice return on the high street

The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice return on the high street

From Monday 3rd August, four Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice shops will reopen their doors at 10am to their loyal customers.

The shops opening are Rutherglen, Shettleston, Govan and Thornliebank.

Social distancing and enhanced cleaning procedures will be in place in each shop with hand sanitizer available. Face masks must be worn by customers while inside. Card payments will be preferred but payment can still be made by cash.

Rhona Baillie, Chief Executive of The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, comments: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome our customers back to our retail shops.

“We know from feedback that people have really missed visiting their local hospice shop where they are always warmly welcomed by our staff and volunteers. People are so generous and have missed donating to the hospice through our shops.

“We are opening four shops to begin with as we are determined that the experience of working and shopping in our outlets are as good as they can be. With the phased planned reopening of our shops, we will ensure any learnings or feedback from the first four openings can be used for the reopening of the remaining 12 shops.

“We will have some amazing new stock on offer following our hugely successful drive-thru for donations. We received thousands of items from our supporters and local communities. It’s taken us weeks to sort through everything and make sure everything is cleaned and ready for sale.”


Currently, shops will not be able to accept physical donations but if people have items to donate, they can be accepted at The Prince & Princess of Hospice, 20 Dumbreck Road, Bellahouston Park or the Hillington Hub, 43 Carlyle Avenue G52 4XX.

Rhona continues: “The hospice income has been badly affected during this crisis. We halted all our fundraising activity and with the closure of our retail shops and public café, the majority of our income which we need to continue to care for people with terminal and life-limiting illness has greatly reduced. I would urge people to come and visit our shops and support us so we can continue to care for people who need it most.

“We continued to care for our patients during this crisis and I commend all our staff for their professionalism and dedication throughout. Help us to keep on caring.”


People can also help support Glasgow’s Hospice during these difficult times by making an online donation at www.ppwh.org.uk/donate
