Speaking about the new shop Bernadette McGarvey, Community Relations Manager at North West Hospice said, “We are so excited about this new venture in Carrick-on-Shannon. We know that our wonderful community will support us and donate their clothes and bric-a-brac to help make this a success for us. We must fundraise over €1 million every year to maintain our essential palliative care services which is a huge challenge. All funds raised from this new shop will go directly towards our hospice services.”
