Retail update

Beth Weir has been manager at our Lonsdale Street shop in Carlisle for 18 months and is delighted to see sales

finally returning to somewhere close to pre-Covid levels.

“There was a slow response initially when we reopened with some people taking a bit of time and consideration

before they came back,” she said. “Although it has taken a long time to recover, it is lovely to see people again.

We are a community here, not just a shop. We have regular customers who come in every week so it’s nice to catch

up with them.”

Beth is hoping for one or two more volunteers to join her on a Saturday, an ideal opportunity for those in college or

university looking for their first work experience. And what donations is she most pleased to see arrive at the shop?

“China sets,” says Beth. “They sell really well and are a high-ticket item.”

If you missed out on the Spring Raffle our

Autumn Raffle has commenced with the chance

to win £1,000 in time for Christmas.

To celebrate the hospice’s 30th Anniversary, we are

giving you more than 30 opportunities to win in the

Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw Autumn Raffle.

One lucky winner will receive the top prize of £1,000

just before the festive season. Plus there’s a second

prize of £100 and 30 supporters will each win £30 as

third prizes.

Lottery Lead Ally Duncan said: “Thanks to yourselves

we had a phenomenal response to our Spring Raffle that

brought in over £40,000. It would be amazing to raise that

much again towards patient care.”

The Autumn draw will be made on Thursday 9

December 2021 with raffle tickets to be returned to the

hospice by Monday 6 December.

Tickets to win one of these fantastic prizes are just

£1 each and there is a book of 20 tickets enclosed

with the newsletter. If you would like tickets sent out

please call the Lottery Team on 01228 810801 or email

lottery@edenvalleyhospice.org.

Thank you!

We’d like to thank the wonderful retail volunteers

who have been essential in enabling us to re-open our

shops after the unexpected second round of closures

at the start of this year.

We’re still in need of volunteers to help us across our

four shops in Carlisle and Penrith. We’re keen to hear

from you if you have a minimum of three hours per

week to dedicate and want to be part of our shops

team that contribute so much towards patient care.

To find out more or to express an interest, please call

01228 817615 or email shops@edenvalleyhospice.org.

We’d love to have you on board!

Brampton and

Wigton shops close

Unfortunately, as a result of ongoing Covid impacts,

we had to take the decision to close our Brampton and

Wigton shops to help safeguard the future of the hospice.

We’d like to thank the many volunteers who

volunteered their time and showed true commitment

to the hospice by running the shops over the past

years, your support meant the world to us.

Christmas

We have some lovely

Christmas cards and

calendars for you to

Wedding Favours

Wedding Favours are A Gift that Makes a Difference

You can support the hospice during your big day with

our beautifully designed table cards. Each card will

be personalised with your details and incorporates a

unique lottery number.

The lottery numbers printed on the cards will be

entered into the weekly lottery draw which will provide

your guests with the opportunity to win one of 58 cash

prizes, including a top prize of £1,000 and a rollover of

up to £10,000.

Wedding Favours are only £2 each, and this will go

towards providing specialist care and support for adults

and children with life-limiting illnesses.

Lottery Lead Ally Duncan said: “Our personalised

wedding favours are a unique way of giving something

back to the hospice while celebrating your special day.

You’re giving your guests chance to win and you’re

helping support the work we do.

“The A6 cards come

personalised with

the couple’s names,

date of the wedding,

and we can also

add a small piece of

wording if it’s in

memory of a

loved one.”

Please note that the Favours must only be given to

guests over 16 and we normally require a minimum of

three weeks, notice to prepare and personalise your

Wedding Favours.
