St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice are a wonderful local charity, founded in 1988 and “provides palliative care to local people, supporting them in ways which go beyond the scope and funding of the NHS. Last year we supported over 1,000 local people with a huge range of support from end-of-life care on our ward to supporting carers, and from helping children cope with grief to helping patients return to work after an illness.”
For more information on their services and how you can get involved, visit their website; nearly 85% of their care is funded by donations so the next time you have a de-clutter, remember your unloved books or vinyl is someone else’s treasure and you will help to do a good thing.
Over on the High Street, you’ll find Scope Northwich “the disability equality charity in England and Wales.” They provide practical information and emotional support when it’s most needed and campaign tirelessly to create a fairer society. The Northwich shop sells books, bric-a-brac, clothes and accessories as well as homewares and music, who knows you may find a rare vinyl donated there. By donating to the shop, you’ll be helping create a fairer society as well as recycling and giving your pre-loved items a new home and by selling the items, the charity continue to raise money to help achieve this. They’re open every day with reduced hours on Sundays.
