A new kind of hospital shop...

by Thomas Walshaw

On 03 September, we will launch a brand new kind of online charity shop in collaboration with Sara Melin, co-founder of The Poundshop*.

In addition to raising funds in support of people in health and social care, we aim to make great contemporary design more accessible to everyone. Working with Sara allows us to offer a new, exciting product range from both emerging designers to the more established.

Products ranging from notebooks and colouring books to cards and pillow cases: all chosen to make the perfect gifts for a loved one in care. Together, we have selected this thrilling new range and we hope you will like it as much as we do. All new products will be available online from 03 September.

Not only that...

From 18:00 on Thursday 03 September, we would like to invite you to enjoy and experience these new products at our first ever pop up shop at the Menier Gallery. For three days only, you will be able to view the items first-hand and exclusively purchase in store!

This is truly not to be missed. We expect demand for these fantastic designs to be incredibly high.

Let us know you’re coming using our Eventbrite panel below. Happy shopping!
