New vans hit road for hospice charity shops
TWO new vans have hit the road to support the running of hospice charity shops across Sefton.
St Joseph's Hospice, in Thornton, have the new vehicles thanks to a part-funding agreement with Bootle-based Bank View Hire.
The hospice has ten shops located across Merseyside, including Waterloo, as well as in Liverpool and West Lancashire, and these shops will all be serviced by the new vans, which will also be available for furniture collections and household clearances across the area.
The keys for the new vans were handed over to hospice retail manager, Jo Rigby-Clare, by Maureen Cross, owner of Bank View Hire, on Tuesday, October 17 at Bank View Hire, on Derby Road in Bootle. Jo said: “Our new vans will make a huge difference to the number of furniture collections and house clearances we can facilitate.
“We are always in need of more goods to sell in our shops, especially furniture, and our new vans mean we will now be able to collect more furniture from people’s homes, completely free of charge.
“We are very grateful to everyone at Bank View Hire for their unwavering support since 2014 and for making our new vans look fantastic.
“The vans will be located at our Warbreck furniture shop, near Aintree, from where we arrange all our collections and clearances.
“If you have any good quality furniture you would like to donate, please give us a call.”
