Hospice at Home West Cumbria operate 2 fantastic Charity Shops in Workington and Cockermouth. We are also proud to partner with Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland where our 3rd shop in Keswick operates as a joint venture with proceeds going to both Hospice charities.
Our shops have been closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic and sadly we will not be reopening our Whitehaven shop. Our Workington, Cockermouth and Keswick shops are however open once again.
Our joint venture in Museum Square, Keswick, is open. Please call the shop on 01768 775830 to check the opening times.
Our Workington shop is open Monday – Saturday 9.30am – 3.45pm.
Our Cockermouth shop is open Tuesday – Friday 10.00am – 1.00pm.
We are still developing our new ways of working for taking new donations and operate a list for requests of donation collections. If you have good quality pre-loved items that you would like to donate, please call our shops directly or our Donation Centre on 01900 268229.
You can still support us and keep up to date by visiting our website, our eBay store and following us on social media.
Our retail staff are supported by approximately 86 amazing volunteers who are invaluable in the day-to-day running of our shops.
Our shops are a great way to support Hospice at Home West Cumbria and now you can shop from your own home at any time, day or night, by visiting our eBay shop
Head on over to our ebay store where we sell a wide variety of antiques, collectables and rare items. We stock a range of vintage clothing, jewellery and ornaments as well as a selection of out of print books and first additions.
You can also donate items specifically for us to sell online so please get in touch on 01900 268229 if you have something more unusual that you would like to donate to Hospice at Home West Cumbria.
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.
