Our Shops

Sandy 2015

Keech Hospice Care currently has 33 charity shops located throughout Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes. We sell good quality donated goods at great prices. In addition to our second-hand stock, we also sell Christmas cards, calendars and diaries, and a small selection of new goods. With your support as a customer, volunteer or by donating goods, we can achieve even more for our patients and families. Find your nearest charity shop here.
