THE Mayor of Bridgwater and a town crier helped to welcome a new charity furniture shop to Bridgwater last week.

The St Margaret’s Hospice shop, on High Street, sells an eclectic mix of second hand items as well as a small line in brand new furniture.

It costs approximately £27,400 a day to fund the specialist care and support St Margaret’s provides to people with a life-limiting illness and their families.

All of the profits raised by the shops go directly towards funding this free service to the local community.

To donate your unwanted items of good quality furniture to help stock this latest venture in Bridgwater please call 01278 458785.
