Charity News: Hitchin Shop Opening
7 March 2018
This month saw the opening of another Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) Charity Shop, continuing EHAAT’s growth in retail by opening a branch in Hitchin. Supporters can now visit, drop of donations, or simply head in for a chat to find out about our life-saving service. The shop is managed by Romyla White and a team of vital volunteers. Can you help support your local life-saving Charity? Get in touch with our Volunteer Team today and find out how you can be support your local Charity Shop.
Matt Seccombe, Head of Retail, said: ‘The feedback from the community of Hitchin has been fantastic, with many already enquiring about volunteering in our shop and donations already coming through the door! We are very grateful for the support and I would just like to thank everyone that has made this happen.’
Plans are also underway to have EHAAT’s very first warehouse operational by the summer. The warehouse will allow for plenty of storage space for donations generously provided by the public as well as space to incorporate our ecommerce department, sorting areas and large storage facilities for those bigger items that can’t fit into our Shops.
Due to the adverse weather conditions our official opening of the Hitchin shop has been delayed to May 16th.
