New Myton Hospices shop bursting with bargains

BARGAIN books, clothes, household goods and DVDs are available from The Myton Hospices new charity shop in Church Street.

The charity opened the doors of its second Rugby charity shop on Friday (October 13).

Myton’s chief executive Ruth Freeman and community engagement manager Olivia Bowskill did the honours with an official ribbon cutting before staff, volunteers and eager shoppers were welcomed into the new store.

The new shop’s manager Megan Featonby and her team were kept busy as shoppers queued up at the till with sturdy walking shoes, autumnal coats, sparkly dresses, jewellery and more.




Megan said: “I’ve come from working in a bar, having worked in a few charity shops as part of my NVQ. I wanted a new challenge and it’s a great cause working for a hospice.

“My Nan was in a hospice so I know how important hospice care is. People seem to think hospices are just places where people go to die, but there’s so much more to it, like the support for families.”


The charity has three hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick. Last year it supported more than 1,400 people and their families in our three hospices, via patient and family support services, and in the community through Myton at Home.

Myton needs to raise £8.8million this year to continue providing services free of charge, relying entirely on donations and support from local communities.

The shop is open 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am-4pm on Sunday.

Volunteers are needed to help keep the shop running. Anyone who has a few spare hours a week can visit www.mytonhospice.org/retail-volunteer or contact Charlotte Witteridge at [email protected].
