A beloved Abbots Langley charity shop has recorded a heart-warming video encouraging residents to pop in and thanking those who already have since they reopened.
The Hospice of St Francis (HOSF) shop in Langley Parade, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, recently reopened in line with government guidelines and the charity said that Abbots branch has received the best response from shoppers out of all of their other branches.
The Abbots shop released a video last month where manager, Trevor, addressed shoppers and put on quite a show. While speaking about the shop’s wedding stock, he seamlessly shifted into a suit and bowtie.
In the video, he said: “It’s so emotional to have our doors open again and welcome our lovely customers and volunteers back. We’ve got lots of goodies in the shop so by all means, do pop down and have a little look.
“I’d like to thank all our customers for all their lovely purchases, whether it be jackets, coats, dresses, when you go out for an evening and you’ve got that beautiful dress on and people ask ‘Where did you purchase it from?’ the answer is The Hospice of St Francis shops.”
HOSF is a charity which helps 2,000 local people and their families, in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, to live their precious lives well through improving symptoms, achieving personal goals and helping them to feel safe.
