We have charity shops located across Blaenau Gwent plus Blaenavon and Merthyr. We sell pre-loved donated items that range from Sofas to shoes as well as our own range of Christmas cards and diaries from September to December each year. We also have a varied selection of new goods, Halloween and Christmas decorations, greeting cards and gifts all year round.
The aim of our charity shops is to provide a regular and sustainable source of income that supports the work of the hospice. We also recycle a wide range of goods to do our best in supporting the environment and raising extra funds. There are some items we are unable to accept because of regulations set out by trading standards. At times we may also need to limit what we accept due to the demand on space within store.
We pride ourselves in offering a wide variety of items at the best possible price so visit one of our shops today to pick up a bargain! You can find your local store here

Phil was shell shocked when diagnosed with Prostate Cancer three years ago, age 44. Not knowing where else to turn, Phil self-referred to the hospice, already aware of the service as his father- in- law had received support. “When I was diagnosed I was unsure where to turn. The hospice helped me understand my diagnosis and then explained the services they could provide to support me and my family” Shortly after Phil’s referral his specialist nurse saw he was suffering from a number of stress induced problems and suggested complementary therapy. “I was sceptical to begin with, but I could soon feel the benefits. My stress levels decreased and my sleep dramatically improved”. Phil received reflexology, massage and aromatherapy he also received these treatments when staying at Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan hospital. The treatments improved Phil’s physical and psychological symptoms, allowing him to open up, discussing his fears and anxieties in a safe and relaxed environment. “It was my oasis in life, it was me time and I didn’t get that anywhere else. I would highly recommend having complementary therapies to anyone who is unsure. They have helped me no end and I haven’t looked back since” Phil explained. During Phil’s journey he accessed a variety of the hospice’s services including family support, nursing and therapies. The clinical team worked together providing the support Phil needed. Phil was discharged from the hospice as his symptoms were controlled and stable. Although Phil was anxious about discharge, he worked with the team and knows that should anything change, the hospice is only ever a phone call away.
