Not Just Another Charity Shop

The Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Mrs Connie Hockley, opened the latest addition to the Rowans Hospice family of shops in Stubbington Green on Thursday 8th September at 11am.

In reaction to the growing trend in crafts and upcycling, the shop in Stubbington will sell homewear, kitchenalia and children’s clothing as well as upcycled furniture and craft materials. Rather than being just another charity shop, Rowans Hospice hopes to surprise and delight customers with a wide range of goods.

Katie Green, Retail Area Coach, said: “Stubbington seemed to be the perfect location for our new shop with lovely shops and tea rooms nearby; we hope our shop will add to the retail experience already on offer in the village.”

Teresa Ross, Stubbington Shop Manager, said “I am really excited to join the Rowans Hospice team and to be managing such a beautiful shop.” Keeley Goszczynski, Stubbington Sales Assistant, added, “The whole team here is looking forward to being part of the Stubbington community and we can’t wait to open our doors on Thursday 8th September.”

Visit the shop at 27 Stubbington Green, Stubbington, Fareham, PO14 2JY.
