The opening will be held at the new store on 21 Maple Street, Cooroy at 10am and includes a huge opening sale with plenty of discounted items across the store and free celebration cake. All community members are welcome.
Bloomhill President, Jenny Carroll said the charity was very excited about the new Cooroy Op Shop and becoming part of such a ‘tight-knit’ community.
“Bloomhill services more than 900 clients from across the Sunshine Coast, including Cooroy and surrounding areas,” Jenny said.
“In fact, a significant number of our clients come from this area,” Jenny said.
Bloomhill Cancer Help is a Sunshine Coast based charity and provides support and assistance to those affected by cancer. Operated by a team of dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill offers counselling, transport to appointments, respite care and a range of complementary therapies and other practical help.
The Cooroy Op Shop is one of six Bloomhill Op Shops situated throughout the Sunshine Coast. The other stores are located in Buderim on Main Street, Nambour opposite the hospital, Maroochydore on First Ave, Mooloolaba on Brisbane Rd and Caloundra on Bullcock Street.
“Bloomhill relies on our Op Shops to provide 80% of the funding required to continue providing our valuable services,” Jenny said.
Jenny said all the Bloomhill Op Shops were always in need of quality stock, particularly furniture, home wares and bric-a-brac.
“We are in desperate need of donations, so in addition to the opening celebration, we are asking people to ‘de-clutter’ their homes and donate any unwanted, saleable items to Bloomhill,” Jenny said.
“Donations can be dropped off at any of the Bloomhill Op Shops during opening hours or you can call 5445 6858 to organise a free collection,” Jenny said.
