Hospice at Home West Cumbria operate 3 fantastic Charity Shops in Workington, Whitehaven and Cockermouth.  We are also proud to partner with Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland where our 4th shop in Keswick operates as a joint venture with proceeds going to both Hospice charities.

As part of the easing of lockdown, non-essential shops including Charity Shops are now able to open.  We are planning to phase the opening of our shops:

Please Gift Aid it

When you make a donation to us, whether that’s a direct financial gift or a donation of goods for us to sell in our charity shops, we’re able to claim back the tax that you have paid on the donation.

As a hospice charity, we don’t pay tax on most types of income, which is why the tax paid on donations we receive can be claimed back. This is called Gift Aid and amounts to an extra 25p for every £1 that you give.
