About Rennie Grove Hospice Care
About This Shop
Rennie Grove Hospice Care believes that every local patient with an advanced, progressive life-limiting illness should receive the care they need to live as fully as possible at home or wherever they choose to be, to the very end of their life.
Our nurses and clinicians aim to give patients in Bucks and Herts that choice by working with other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive and seamless care for patients and their families at all stages of the illness.
Alongside our 24-hour responsive Hospice at Home service, we offer patients and their families access to a Family Support Team and, in areas served by our Grove House day hospice in St Albans, there is additional access to specialist nurses, a Doctor, and other clinicians as well as further support at home through outreach services such as occupational therapy and homesitters.
The founding charities that formed Rennie Grove Hospice Care have nearly half a century’s combined experience of caring for patients with cancer and other life-limiting illness and have supported more than 15,000 local families to date.
We rely on public support for 85% of our £6.5 million annual running costs to keep giving patients and their families the care they need and the choice they deserve.
Nearly £2 million every year is raised by our chain of 21 charity shops located throughout Bucks and Herts. Thanks to careful management and the dedication of a large number of volunteers we have been able to achieve a ranking of the third most profitable of all hospice charity shop chains in the country.
Our charity shops sell great quality items of clothing, accessories, household items, toys, furniture, books, CDs and DVDs. Thanks to the recent addition of a new distribution centre at our Retail and Trading HQ in Tring, we are able to rotate items between our shops keeping the stock in each shop fresh for our loyal customers.
We also have a successful eBay shop that raises around £1,500 each week and is shortly launching a brand new online shop on our website www.renniegrove.org.
