Katharine House has launched a new shop in Banbury to complement the hospice’s existing town outlet store.

The new shop, opened in Hillview, Banbury at 10am on Friday 25 August, and caters to the local community, offering a whole range of pre-loved goods.

Manager Paula Putt, who has worked for Katharine House for more than 17 years as the shop manager for the hospice’s Chipping Norton store, said the team was looking forward to welcoming new customers.

"Our shops are the face of Katharine House and are essential to help raise vital funds so the hospice can continue the good work it does in the community. The Hillview shop is bright, modern and friendly, with a little bit of everything for sale. Plus, it has easy access as we have a parking bay right outside the front of the shop. 

"It will be a new challenge for me setting up and running a new shop within the Hillview community. I have been privileged to work with some amazing, dedicated volunteers and paid staff, past and present, and equally generous donors and customers who over time have become friends and regular customers."
