Fill your Christmas stockings at the HospiceWits shops

If you’ve ever visited one of our HospiceWits charity shops in Johannesburg, you’ll know that the sheer variety available is staggering. No matter what you’re looking for, you’re likely to find it at a HospiceWits shop. Add to this the fact that the items we stock in our shops are very reasonably priced, and it makes sense why HospiceWits’ charity shops should be your first stop when you start ticking items off your Christmas shopping list.

The HospiceWits charity shops are based in Parkmore, Orange Grove and Kensington, along with our regular spot at the Rosebank Flea Market, each with its own collection of treasures. Ranging from second-hand clothing, wool and household appliances to vintage items, board games, books and white elephant items, there is truly something for every taste.

The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly impacted all of our lives this year, and if you are looking to scale down the spend on Christmas presents, or for something to suit the budget set for your company’s Secret Santa celebrations, HospiceWits shops are where you will be able to tick items off your gift-shopping list.

An appeal for donations

Every item sold in our HospiceWits charity shops adds to the funds that our non-profit organisation needs to provide care and support to our patients, and cater for all the costs associated with our palliative care services in Johannesburg and surrounds.

When dropping by to do your Christmas shopping, please consider bringing along unused clothing, books and household and miscellaneous items to donate. Keeping our shelves stocked this December is key – especially considering that you’ll probably leave with more items than when you arrived.

We are always looking for:

• Pots, pans and kitchen goods
• Crockery, cutlery
• Linen and curtains
• Ladies’, men’s and children’s clothing
• Furniture
• Electrical items in working order
• Ornaments, bric-a-brac, general home goods
• Books, DVDs and CDs
• Toys

We always appreciate any non-perishable food donations for distribution to our patients.

Thank you in advance for your support, as we look forward to welcoming you to our HospiceWits charity shops soon during this festive season.
