A charity shop in Chalfont St Peter has recently celebrated its soft opening day before their official revealing next month.

A South Bucks Hospice branch, situated along the village’s main square in St Peter’s Court, opened its doors for the first time on Friday, January 26.

The shop has yet to have official signage at its entrance, but public members were seen entering the vicinity to check out and purchase any of the respective donations.

The outlet joins its sister stores in Beaconsfield, Hazlemere and Bourne End.

Its grand opening will take place on Friday, February 9.

A worker from the shop told the Free Press: “We would love some more volunteers and donations.

“We’ve had lots of lovely comments on social media of how things have been laid out, and it looks beautiful.

“The quality of the donations we have received is also very good as well.

“We’ve had lots of customers come in already to check us out, but once the sign is up, then we expect a few more people to come in.

“It’s so important for people to come out and check their local charity shops.

“We help people with end-of-life care with life-threatening conditions.

"The charity does so much.

“Every penny that comes to us means the world to the patients, careers and workers.”

Despite opening, the branch is looking for more volunteers and donations.
