East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has extended its thriving retail portfolio with the opening of its latest charity shop in Leiston.

Businesswoman Ann Monks, who lives in Sibton, a long-standing EACH supporter and a trustee of the charity, had the honour of cutting the ribbon to open the shop in Sizewell Road – with a queue of eager shoppers already waiting outside.

EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia.

Retail income is a lucrative income stream for the charity which currently has 18 shops which in the past year generated £700,000 for its vital work.

Tony Grimmer, EACH area manager, said: “We’re confident the people of Leiston and surrounding areas will get behind our new shop and help us to make it a great success.
