New op shop for Katie Rose Hospice

Katie Rose Cottage Hospice opened its first op shop in Tewantin, QLD five years ago and store manager, Tina Grigson, believes it wouldn’t be still operating nearly as successfully as it has, if donations had not been of a superbly high quality.

And she is equally certain this “most amazing support” for the compassionate work of the Doonan hospice will continue when the new Katie Rose Op Shop opens in the Tewantin’s main street in early January.

The charity previously had two shops in Tewantin, one selling fashion and the other homewares. The opportunity to amalgamate came when the larger building became available.

“One of the advantages of the new store is that our customers will have more space to move around and see what’s for sale,“ Tina said. “Now our volunteers can see and talk to each other and not feel isolated.”

Tina has been a store manager for two years.

“When I heard about the hospice and its caring services, I thought it would be a wonderful organisation to be part of. The concept of people having end of life care in a beautiful home environment with their family before they pass is very important to me.”

“We have a wonderful team for the New Year and we all want to ensure continuing revenue for Katie Rose. So much is happening. We are planning extensions at the hospice by adding two bedrooms and early this year we will be introducing an outreach palliative care service.”

Katie Rose Cottage Hospice chair Carol Raye said: “We are delighted to bring this new shop to the community and it is especially pleasing that it brings our hard working and valuable volunteers together.

“Their dedication to supporting our work is amazing and we are always appreciative of the support from the community.
