Ashgate Hospice > Keeping our customers safe

To protect our staff, volunteers, customers and donors within our shops, we have:  

  • installed Perspex screens by the tills and donation points 
  • made it easier for you to navigate our shop floors at safe distances 
  • extended our returns policy to 60 days. 

We will also be continuing to: 

  • carry out extra cleaning. Find our shop opening hours here.
  • ask customers to pay using contactless methods where possible. We are still accepting cash 
  • ask anyone who visits our shops to wear a face covering before entering 
  • ask our staff and volunteers to wear a face covering. 

We will continually review our safety measures, making changes when necessary.  

What hasn’t changed is the warm, friendly welcome you will always get from our staff and volunteers.
