“The Wellsford Hospice Shop opened behind Mac’s takeaway (now Subway) on June 24, 1996. Ron Cameron, from Rodney Council, cut the ribbon and gave a speech, then all had a cuppa and the shop was open for business. We took $63 on June 26 and $187 on July 10. I started knitting TV slippers with donated wool in 1996. From 2002 to 2009, I knitted 1269 pairs.” Heather Power, Wellsford Hospice Shop.
