THE latest furniture store raising funds for a hospice will open tomorrow.

The Deputy Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor David Horne, will officially open the newest store for The Rowans Hospice, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

It will open in Northern Road, Cosham, the former Blockbuster video shop site.

Anne Yendell, director of finance and operations at the hospice, said: ‘Relocating the furniture side of the business from the warehouse in Farlington to this prime location in Cosham will give us the opportunity to promote even further the excellent quality donations of furniture we receive on a regular basis, resulting in an increase in income.

‘All the profits go to the hospice, which in turn provides care and support for local people affected by life-shortening illnesses.

‘We look forward to working with the Cosham community and believe the new shop will offer many benefits in terms of excellent quality items at affordable prices and opportunities to volunteer and be a part of ensuring the hospice is sustainable for a further 20 years.’
