Please read the latest coronavirus advice before visiting any of the hospice sites.

Shop opening information

All shops closed until December

Our high street shops are closed until December and we are currently unable to accept donations. You can still support the hospice by shopping online and saving your donations for when we reopen. Thank you!


Our priority is the safety of St Christopher’s staff, volunteers and customers, which is why we are introducing new ways of working in retail. Each shop has had a risk assessment and will confirm we have followed all government guidelines. We will display the ‘Staying Covid-19 Secure in 2020’ poster in every shop.

Most shops will be open from Monday to Saturday with a limit on the number of customers in each shop at any one time. Clear information and guidance has been installed to help customers maintain a social distance and all changing rooms will remain closed. We will offer a full refund policy during this period of time to support customers.

Till areas have been fitted with acrylic screens, shop cleaning measures have been increased and hand sanitiser will be available for customers and staff to use. We encourage customers to pay using contactless where possible.

We have set up contactless donation areas in each shop where donors can drop donations safely.

All donated items will be stored for 72 hours before being sorted and put on the shop floor.

Three of our shops will be able to make completely contactless donations:

373 Crofton Road, Locksbottom, BR6 8NR
Please drop off at the loading bay at the back of shop

St Paul’s Cray
85-89 Cotmandene Crescent St Paul’s Cray BR5 2RA

Hayes (Furniture Shop)
20 Station Approach Hayes BR2 7EB
Please drop off at the loading bay at the back of shop

For more information please call the collections and donation line on 020 8768 4675.

We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt our strategy in line with government advice.

We are so incredibly grateful to our supporters for their generous donations.
