Kempston and Biggleswade Nearly New Shops
The first Bedford Daycare Hospice nearly new shop started trading at 211 Bedford Road, Kempston in September 2016 and was opened by Richard Fuller MP and Helen Nellis, the Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire and Patron to the Hospice. July 2017 saw the opening of our second shop at 51 High Street, Biggleswade. They are very popular with the local community selling a whole variety of donated nearly new stock.
We sell good quality nearly new Menswear, Ladieswear, Footwear, Bags and Accessories, Jewellery, China, Bedding and Curtains, Pictures, Kitchen-alia, Books, DVDs, CDs, plus small furniture and selected electricals and a large variety of Bric-a-Brac items. Our stock is changed regularly thanks to the constant flow of donated goods we receive. This means every time you visit you should find something different!
We have our own delivery van available for collections of small furniture and large household items. We’d love you to donate them to our shops. Call us on 01234 855100 to arrange collection. For the convenience of our customers the opening hours of the shop are 9am-5pm daily Monday to Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sundays including some Bank holidays. Opening Soon – New Shop at 210 Bedford Road, Kempston (3 doors down from our original shop). This shop will be selling furniture and electricals exclusively. Any donations would be most gratefully received and can be collected, please phone 01234 855100.
So, how does all this happen??
The shop has two dedicated members of staff and many wonderful and valued volunteers who really enjoy the friendly and rewarding time spent working there. The Boutique is run and staffed entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers!
In both the shop and the boutique, the work involves sorting the donations, pricing and displaying the goods in the shop and most importantly, providing excellent service to all our customers, new and old! Come and visit us soon; we look forward to seeing you.
Afternoon Teas
Why not treat or invite your group of friends or colleagues to an afternoon treat of personal shopping in our “Nearly New Butterfly Boutique’ plus spoil them with afternoon tea in the Hospice served by our resident chef. This takes place on a Wednesday afternoon at 3pm. This is a new venture for the Hospice and we had our first group of ladies recently from the Kempston Central WI who thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon. We charge £11.95 a head and we cater for groups of up to 24 people. Free parking is available at the rear of the Hospice. Bookings can be made via our Facebook page, email address or telephone us on 01234 352015.
Butterfly Nearly New Boutique
The Boutique is housed in a separate building in the garden at the back of the hospice. This can be found by entering the double gates at the side of the building, which takes you into the car park. The shop is easy to access as it has steps and a ramp. Since recent refurbishment, the inside of the boutique is spacious and easier for wheelchair users to move around.
We sell items as listed above in our new Kempston shop and is open Monday to Friday 11am-3pm (except Bank Holidays) and is also open the first Saturday of the month as part of our regular coffee mornings. We are also available to open for special shopping events. Once inside The Butterfly Boutique our customers have often described it as an “Aladdin’s Cave.” It certainly is a hidden gem, full of surprising and wonderful things, at excellent prices!
