                  A SPECIAL PLEA FROM OUR CHARITY SHOPS                      

Please donate electrical goods & appliances in good working order and furniture intact.It would be appreciated if clothing and linen donated were fresh, clean and of good quality.Bric brac, books and all other items donated should be suitable for resale.  

As a charity our shops are at times seen as a dumping ground. Precious time is spent by volunteers sorting items for resale in vain, and our only vehicle is tied up discarding items at the dump instead of collecting items for resale or delivering beds urgently for our Patients.

We are indebted to you for your support and generosity, St Luke's Hospice West Coast could not go forward without your help and kindness ....Please embrace our "Charity Shop Plea".
   Kindly bring your own bags, we do not supply bags, and no longer hand out plastic bags!

In the times in which we live many of your pupils may have encountered or had to deal with the death of a family member or friend.

It is sometimes difficult to talk of death or dying and may be especially so when children or youth are involved.

By pupils being associated with St Luke's Hospice West Coast, be it by collecting donations on our behalf or in school community projects we hope they may become less stressed when faced with death and grow in awareness from their connection to our work.

We would like to encourage schools to help pupils become aware of the beneficial role that St Luke's Hospice plays both to patients during their illness as well as to the extended family so that death can be seen as part of living. 

IDEAS FOR PUPILS TO ASSIST                                                                                              
Collect goods e.g. clothing, bric-a-brac, books, toys etc for sale in either of our two charity shops.

Sell hand made crafts or hold a cake sale at school or at their local shopping centre (where permission obtained).

A school “Civvies” day to collect funds for St Luke’s Hospice West Coast.

Work a shift during school holidays in one of our charity shops as part of their community service (with parents permission).

Organize a Christmas Table at their local shopping centre to raise funds on our behalf (with permission).  

Christmas time is a busy time for all, a gift wrapped by a smiling young face on behalf of St Luke’s Hospice would no doubt be welcomed.

Should your school pupils wish to become involved in raising funds on behalf of St Luke's Hospice West Coast or should your school staff require further information about our organisation or if you would like us to hold a talk at your school we would welcome your inquiry. Please contact St Luke's Hospice West Coast.
