Hospice to open pop-up shop in John Lewis store

Categories: Care, Community Engagement, and Featured.

 St Peter’s Hospice in Bristol is partnering with John Lewis to launch a pop-up show within their department store at the Cribbs Causeway shopping centre north of the city.

The shop will sell second-hand women’s clothes from well-known brands including Hobbs, Fat Face, Phase Eight and Whistles.

There will also be musical performances taking place at the weekends to raise funds for the hospice. Additionally on March 4, to celebrate the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, John Lewis will host an exclusive event for St Peter’s Hospice Nurses, where they will be invited to an evening of pampering, prosecco and styling with visits to the Nail House and the Beauty Houses in-store.

Jayne Clarke, Director of Income Generation at St Peter’s Hospice said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with John Lewis, one of Britain’s best loved stores, to sell a range of wonderful pre-loved ladieswear at their flagship store in Cribbs Causeway.

“For us, the opportunity to create a pop-up shop in the heart of their store is a wonderful opportunity, and that alongside hosting our own evening events and fundraising activities in their store means that this is a true partnership in every way. We look forward to showcasing St Peter’s Hospice shops to this new audience and showing them the benefits of charity shopping”.

The partnership is the first of its kind for John Lewis, and if successful it will be rolled out to other stores in the country.

Alan Andrews, Partner and Community Liaison Co-ordinator said: “At John Lewis & Partners Cribbs Causeway we are passionate to be involved in our local community. We’ve strong connections with many local charities but are particularly excited about our collaboration with St Peter’s Hospice because many of our customers and partners have been touched by their outstanding work”.

The pop-up shop will be open from March 12 to 29. For more information visit St Peter’s Hospice
