Welwyn Garden City charity shop closes

A CHARITY shop which has been trading in WGC for almost 10 years has shut down.

Marie Curie Cancer Care closed on Saturday, marking the termination with a party tomorrow (Tuesday) for current and former members of staff.

The Howardsgate store will be filled by next door neighbour Ronald Brown Opticians, which is moving to the smaller premises one door down.


Alec Barclay, head of shops at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: “We would like to thank everyone who has donated to, and shopped with, us over the years.

“As with all our shops, we reviewed WGC when the opportunity to end our commitment to the lease arose and have taken the decision to close the shop.

“Our local fundraising teams will still be working in the area to fund our Marie Curie Nurses who will continue to provide free home nursing care to terminally ill patients in the local community.”
