TV presenter Jeff Brazier helped reopen the St Francis Hospice charity shop in Elm Park after a revamp.

The shop, in Station Parade, has been updated with new displays for more stock and new flooring.

Jeff was joined by Cllr Roger Evans (Elm Park, Conservative), and hospice mascot Frankie the Lion to cut the ribbon last Thursday.

Jeff’s grandmother Molly Faldo and his cousin Rosie Wallace are both volunteers at the shop.

He said: “I’m very proud that my Nan and cousin give up a day every week to volunteer at this shop.

“The shop now looks great and I’m sure it will raise a lot of money for the hospice and encourage more people to donate goods for sale in the shop.”

Shop manager Lynn Saunders said: “I’m very happy with the new look and it also means we are now accessible for customers on mobility scooters.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to all the staff and volunteers who have helped me get the shop ready for its relaunch.”
