Tardis touches down in Sherwood to take shoppers back in time at charity store launch


Doctor Who’s trusted time machine will be taking bargain hunters back in time this Saturday at a new charity shop in Sherwood

Visitors to Nottinghamshire Hospice’s new community shop – which opens its doors for the first time tomorrow – can step into the Tardis and try on items from the large range of retro clothing on sale.

Those into nostalgia can also browse through a wide selection of vinyl on offer and spin some discs in the store’s listening booth.

The new shop on Mansfield Road is much larger than the one previously belonging to the hospice which was based opposite.

Tim has a personal connection with the charity because the hospice looked after his wife Sal before she passed away last year.

Penny Cooper, area retail Manager for Nottinghamshire Hospice says: “The new shop is exciting and very different. It’s community based with a much larger selection of goods, lots of vinyl which is very popular at the moment, and if you fancy travelling back in time you can jump into our Tardis and try on clothing from our vintage and retro section.”

The Sherwood shop is one of nine shops across Nottinghamshire which bring in more than £1 million annually to benefit people with incurable or life-limiting illness. Sherwood shop takes nearly £90,000 a year. In its last week before moving to the new premises takings were £3,500.
