Does anyone know why this charity shop has currently vacated their seemingly purpose built space outside the main entrance to the hospital? Will they be returning, or will it be taken over by a coffee shop/estate agents? And where else can I take a bag of clothes?
Apparantley, my colleague says the shop is still open at Guy's, if you go past the shop and turn right, they have a small store like room. Not sure if it will be there long? Think they are still taking stuff in for now.
I donated a load of books the other day to the book trolley but had to go the St. Thomas' as that's where the Friends are based. The lady there told me they were struggling to get volunteer staff to man the shop so that may have something to do with it?
I had always understood that the shop was only ever supposed to only be a temporary structure (indeed I assumed it was coming down as part of the Thomas Heatherwick environmental improvements), and that at some point the rest of the railings to the East Wing (Boland House/Counting House) were supposed to be restored???
Not sure if we are all talking about the same place? Are you referring to the corner at the other end of the building to McDonalds where different people sell different stuff e.g. handbags one day, books the next? We are talking about the purpose built glass shop over at the carpark.
