Are You Feeling Creative?

I love a juicy project to get my teeth into…you know when you just see something and you think…’I could do wonderful things with that’…and before you know what happened a very nice person is helping load it into your car!

Does that happen to you too…I’m sure it’s not just me? My guilty secret is furniture…my spare room is full of pieces in various stages of remodeling!

I was in our furniture warehouse this morning and they have got just the thing (things really!) for the adventurous or gifted refurbisher (I think I just made this word up but I’m sure you know what I mean!) Instead of waffling just let me show you the pictures…

I mean look at them…aren’t they amazing? Can you imagine what you could do with them?

There’s a lot of work needed to bring them back but oh my goodness wouldn’t it be worth it?

If these chair frames (at least 2 are Ercol) are calling your name then you need to call the warehouse fast…or leave a message on our Facebook page…I guarantee they won’t be around for long!

Dying Matters…What Can You Do?

If you’re a regular St Mary’s shopper you will have seen the displays in all of our shop windows…promoting Dying Matters Awareness Week.

Maybe walking by you’ve wondered what it all means…I know I’ve had questions from a few volunteers here in Barrow…the window displays have helped start conversations we don’t normally have and made people think, which is great.

If you want to know more you can pop into any of our shops and pick up a leaflet…find out what you can do today.

Trish had a great day meeting the Barrow teams, chatting about the Drop Your Pants campaign…happy days .

Don’t forget all you men out there…just because the campaign is over doesn’t mean we don’t want your donations…you can drop off all your unwanted goodies at any St Mary’s Hospice Shop…if you’re unsure about what we accept head over to Facebook, leave us a message and we’ll get back to you ASAP

Drop Your Pants …

Anyone who shops with St Mary’s Hospice may have had a little chuckle…or raised an eyebrow as they checked out our cheeky window displays this week!

There is of course a serious message behind the lighthearted displays…we want to show our support and help raise awareness of testicular cancer…the signs and symptoms.

“Drop your pants” is a joined up campaign between 8 North West hospices…the idea behind the campaign is to highlight testicular cancer and the symptoms to look out for and at the same time encourage men to donate and shop with us.

If you want to support the ‘Drop Your Pants’ campaign you can drop off your clothes donations at any St Mary’s Hospice shops.
