St Luke’s children’s shop in Alsager is expanding



Has your child outgrown their cot, highchair or pushchair? Are you desperate to make space in your house by getting rid of bulky toddler toys your child no longer plays with?

If so, St Luke’s Hospice is asking people to consider donating them to help the charity raise money for hospice care.

After four successful years, the charity’s children’s shop in Alsager is expanding and will be able to sell larger children’s equipment and toys.

The hospice’s only children’s shop, based on Crewe Road in Alsager, has previously only had space available to sell children’s toys, games, books, DVDs and clothes.

But after taking over the neighbouring premises, staff are now appealing for more – and larger – children’s items to stock the shelves.

Shop manager Christine Cooke said: “The support we receive from the local community is fantastic, and both shoppers and those people donating have made our little shop the success that it has become.

“We are all very excited about the additional space we will have, which gives us the chance to sell a new and wider range of items such as pushchairs, buggies, highchairs, cots and larger toys and games, as well as expanding our existing range.

“What this great news means is that we need more stock and we would love everyone to help if they can by donating any suitable items to our shop on Crewe Road. Pop in with your donations or if you have any larger items we can arrange collection if needed.

“The shop’s success has come from the local people of Alsager so we hope you are able to help us again now and we look forward to seeing many more of you in our children’s shop in the heart of the village soon.”
