More than 100 bargain hunters queued for their chance to pick up a bargain when St Luke’s Hospice opened its latest charity shop in Crystal Peaks.

The Sheffield shopping centre is celebrating its 25th anniversary with the Love to Help campaign, supporting 25 charities across the city.

For St Luke’s, that meant the chance to open a pop-up shop in the heart of the mall.

Eager shoppers were waiting at the door from 9am for the opening ceremony to be conducted by the hospice’s deputy chief executive, Judith Park, assisted by St Luke’s mascot Digs the Dog.

In the first 48 hours of trading shop staff and volunteers sold almost £3,000 of stock.

“This was an outstanding opening for us and we are extremely grateful for the opportunity,” said Paul Summerland, St Luke’s retail head.
