New charity furniture shop opens in Thrupp

Longfield Hospice has announced the opening of its new furniture shop and warehouse in Thrupp.

The new premises features a furniture showroom, which will be open to the public, a donation hub, a large warehouse storage area for stock, and parking.

Local actor, Susan Lynch – who has appeared in shows such as Happy Valley, joined hospice staff and volunteers to celebrate the opening.

Laura Owen, Head of Retail, has spent the last four months organising the transformation of the new premises on the Kingfisher business park. She said: “We’re so excited to have officially opened our warehouse after months of planning, and we’re especially delighted that Susan has come to cut the ribbon for us. 

“The new warehouse will transform Longfield’s retail operations. Located just off the London Road outside Stroud, it’s easily accessible so locals can drop off their donations in bulk, plus we’ve got a fantastic furniture showroom where customers can browse and try before they buy.”

Susan added: “I’m really touched to be asked to open this fantastic facility in Thrupp. I urge people to pop in and donate furniture they no longer need and also pick up anything at an affordable rate, which in turn will help support the wonderful service the staff provide at Longfield Hospice, where they help care and support more than 2,500 people across Gloucestershire for free in such difficult times for patients and their families.”
