Offering a service of comprehensive care & support


It may be small in size, but the new Hospice Shoppe is definitely no ordinary run-of-the-mill dusty musty charity shop!

Set in the peaceful, tranquil gardens at the Hospice headquarters in Taybank, the new shop is a “must visit” for everyone who loves beautiful things but can’t always afford the price-tags usually attached to them.

With the accent on vintage style, the new shop opened its doors for the first time at the end of May and offers patrons a glimpse into the olde worlde charm of days gone by. From clothing to cases, books & bric-a-brac, there’s a little something to catch almost everyone’s eye.

Apart from browsing through the carefully selected range of gently loved second-hand items in the shop, discerning bargain hunters can also enjoy a hot cup of cappuccino & home-made rusks on the patio adjacent to the shop and view the prolific bird life in the gardens.

The St Francis Hospice Charity Shoppes can be found at Hospice Lane, Taybank, (041) 360 7070 and 63 – 4th Avenue, Newton Park, (041) 364 1970 both based in Port Elizabeth and 20 Du Plessis Street, Humansdorp, 076 561 7974. They offer a wide range of clothing, books, collectables and bric-a-brac at very reasonable prices.

All proceeds generated in our charity shops go towards the loving care of 250 patients living with a life-limiting illness such as Cancer, HIV/Aids, Motor Neurone Disease.
