With Christmas just around the corner and festive shopping in full swing, Queenscourt is asking you to remember our network of charity shops when it comes to buying gifts this year. All of our seven retail outlets have a distinctly festive feel about them and are hoping to entice shoppers through their doors to pick up a bargain and support their local hospice. Shopping with Queenscourt is a much more relaxed affair than battling the crowds at the huge department stores. So, why not pop in and take your time browsing through our stock and pick up a few last-minute items.
For those planning on sending Christmas cards this year, we have a bumper selection of designs, all sold in packs of ten and all standard letter size when it comes to posting. We have local scenes, traditional nativity and Christmas story cards, along with those featuring the obligatory Father Christmas, snowmen and robins. If you’re still stuck on what to buy someone this year, then how about our Queenscourt Calendar which is made up of 12 photographs taken by some of our supporters. The A4 calendar is a visual celebration of what makes the Southport, Formby and West Lancashire area special. It showcases a diverse array of stunning photography, including shots of red squirrels, Southport Pier at sunset, horse-riders at Ainsdale Beach and ducks at Martin Mere. It costs just £5 and is available in all Queenscourt shops.

Sue Newth, Area Retail Manager, said: “Our friendly network of retail outlets provides an invaluable source of income for Queenscourt and we are indebted to the band of dedicated volunteers who help us run the shops. We want to encourage people to think of us when they are dashing around the shops and for them to pop in, say hello to our teams and, you never know, we may just have that perfect gift you’ve been looking for!”
