THE Acorns Children's Hospice shop in Pershore officially re-opened on Friday (March 28) after undergoing a makeover.

The store, in Pershore High Street, was opened by the mayor councillor Charles Tucker, following a three week closure.

After ten years trading in the town the shop now has a new look frontage with a different colour scheme, as well as a change in interior design and layout.

Lyn Smith, manager, said: "We will be updating all areas of the shop and introducing some new sections, including as children's area and book corner.

"We're all really excited about the changes and hope it will bring customers, new and old, into the shop to help is to continue to raise vital funds to provide care and support for local life-limited children and their families."

Cllr Tucker was joined by staff, volunteers and local supporters of the charity and there were a number of activities taking place throughout the day.
