Don’t believe all you hear on the street. The Rye rumour mill is in full swing at the moment and, with so many of us facing such an uncertain future, our strength is in pulling together as a community rather than helping the spread of ‘Chinese whispers’.
Contrary to popular belief, St Michael’s Hospice Shop on Cinque Ports Street is not closing down. It may look that way as, at the moment, one half of the shop has been emptied and refurbished, and the other half is currently undergoing the same treatment. All things being equal (according to one of the contractors on site), the shop is due to re-open in September.
If you haven’t yet taken your donations to Sue Ryder (which re-opened on Monday, August 17) then keep filling those bags with saleable goodies and take them along to the St Michael’s Hospice Shop next month as they, like all other charity shops, have been losing money and urgently need your support.
They have always been there when we needed them, so now it’s our turn to help to repay all that they have done for so many people – and all of us probably know someone who is indebted to St Michael’s Hospice.
