Goadsby assist Lewis-Manning Hospice Care with their retail expansion

Goadsby’s Retail Department are pleased to have recently been involved with assisting local charity, Lewis-Manning Hospice Care in expanding their network of shops across the region.

Lewis Manning Hospice Care is a charity, providing end-of-life care and support to patients and their families with life-limiting illnesses. Revenue from its charity shops play a big part in helping to deliver a range of support services to patients.

Edd Watts, Manager of Goadsby’s Retail Department, has worked alongside the charity in recent years to help double their existing network, with new shops opening in Swanage, Poole, Winton and Ringwood, with further openings in the pipeline.

Edd has worked closely with Su Newcombe, the charities Retail Director in identifying key locations for the charities expansion in the region, either through Goadsby’s existing landlord portfolio or by sourcing new premises through his contacts within the property sector.

Edd Watts, commented: “It has been a pleasure to work with Su and the team at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care over the last couple of years. With our local knowledge and connections within the property market, I hope we have been able to secure sites that will be strategically beneficial to the success of Lewis-Manning’s fundraising for the foreseeable future.”

Su said, “We developed our retail strategy to cement the retail position by acquiring new shops so we can reach more people, grow the profile of the charity and our retail presence within the Dorset communities in which we serve.

“Edd at Goadsby has become integral to our acquisitions team, helping us to grow the chain to nine shops, with plans to open another four shops over the next two years.  We are extremely grateful to Edd for all of his property expertise and commitment to the charity.”

Su concluded, “If you are planning to declutter this Christmas, you can donate your preloved things to us at one of your local shops  https://lewis-manning.org.uk/shops/   and help to provide extraordinary hospice care in your community.”
