Hunstanton mayor opens Norfolk Hospice shop
Tapping House to benefit from seventh shop in area.
Hunstanton mayor Carole Bower felt at home yesterday when she officially opened a new charity shop where she is the deputy manager.
The Norfolk Hospice shop, which is on St Edmunds Terrace, will be managed by her colleague, deputy mayor Elaine Clutton and is the seventh the charity has opened in the area.
The shops all raise money for the hospice, in Snettisham, which currently supports more than 280 people a month at Tapping House.
The charity is raising cash to run a new purpose-built �4m hospice being built at Hillington, which will offer 12 in-patient beds.

Work began on the new site back in August, but the charity also needs to cover the running costs of �3.4m a year when it eventually opens in 2013.
Chief executive, Richard Shaw, has previously urged Norfolk's wealthy residents to help fund the building costs of the hospice.
