Pilgrims Hospices Broadstairs shop undergoes exciting transformation

Pilgrims Hospices Broadstairs shop, located on the High Street, will be closed for approximately six weeks starting in February 2024 for extensive building renovations. The upper level of the building will be transformed into flats, which will generate important income to support the local hospice services.

During the closure, the shop will undergo a complete refurbishment, promising a fresh and inviting space for customers when it reopens in the spring. To celebrate the relaunch, a special “Brand New with Tags” event is planned, featuring a curated collection of high-quality items.

While the Broadstairs shop is temporarily closed, the dedicated staff and volunteers are not taking a break. They will be lending their support to other Pilgrims shops in the area, offering their support to help maintain the charity’s ongoing retail operations.

Pilgrims Hospices is grateful for the community’s continued support during this development and looks forward to welcoming everyone back to the Broadstairs shop with renewed enthusiasm and an expanded offering.

A Pilgrims Hospices spokesperson stated, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to renovate our shop while the upper-floor flat conversions take place. I’m sure people will love our new pre-loved shopping experience, and we will look forward to welcoming all our existing and new customers into the shop when we re-open.”

During the anticipated six week shop closure, donations can be taken to Pilgrims Hospices Tivoli Brooks Warehouse, Unit C, Tivoli Brooks, Margate CT9 5FG where they will be gratefully received. The Tivoli Brook location has the added benefit of parking directly outside. Pilgrims shops are also located in Cliftonville, Ramsgate, Margate, Westgate, and Birchington.  Details can be found on Pilgrims Hospice’s website, www.pilgrimshospices.org/shop-with-us.

Each year, Pilgrims Hospices give care and comfort to over 2,500 people in east Kent who are coming to terms with an illness that sadly cannot be cured.  The charity supports patients to live life as well as possible until the very end, free from pain and distress.
