A hospice is recruiting staff and volunteers to work in a “jewel in the crown” new shop raising funds for care.

St Clare Hospice, in Hastingwood, is due to open the "stylish" new charity shop in South Street, Bishop’s Stortford at the end of December.

The charity already runs stores in Harlow, Buckhurst Hill, Debden, Epping, Great Dunmow, and Saffron Walden as well as an existing Bishops Stortford music and books shop.

Head of retail Lesley Glynn said: “It promises to be the jewel in our crown when it comes to shopping experiences with St Clare.

“Every time a dress, bag, plant pot, pair of shoes or trousers is sold you will be supporting St Clare Hospice to provide outstanding care.”
