Zest from St Elizabeth’s Hospice

The Zest shops and the wider Brand is the new name for care and services to the younger people at St Elizabeth’s Hospice, Ipswich.

A youthful and vibrant look, but also with a strong focus on eco, sustainability, and ethics, in all a very different charity retail model.



Zest reinvents the traditional charity shop

At Zest in Ipswich and Colchester, you’ll find a collection of stylish second-hand clothing from some of your favourite brands and designers alongside trendy homeware, gifts, and accessories 


The charity shop, which is part of St Elizabeth Hospice, is also committed to being eco-friendly and sustainable.

At their Ipswich store, the Zest team stock Fill-selling cleaning products which are vegan, cruelty-free, have no harsh chemicals, and are biodegradable. Customers can either buy a Fill glass bottle or bring their own container to fill up with laundry and household cleaning products.

As well as in-store, you can shop online via the Zest Depop shop. New items are regularly added so there is always something new to explore and snap up.
