Day 6: Christmas Memory Baubles
During the festive season, it is customary to take time to remember those who are no longer with us. To celebrate them and their memory we have our Mary Ann Remembrance Baubles, for £5 you can create a tribute to a loved one to remember them this year.

Day 7: Pre-Christmas Clearout
Is it customary in your house to do a little festive clearout before Christmas hits? This year why not do your bit for the environment and instead of sending those things to landfill donate them to #YourLocalHospice shops. We are always in need of things to sell in our shops and for raffle prizes.
