Stylish Sustainable Fashion in Support of Local Hospice Care

A brand new boutique for fans of sustainable and preloved fashion has landed in Chelmsford city centre in support of Essex’s only children’s hospice.

Re:loved by Little Havens, located in High Chelmer Shopping Centre, creates a premium shopping experience for fans of sustainable shopping where every purchase supports the hospice charity which cares for local children and young people living with complex and incurable conditions.

Open seven days a week, the store offers preloved and vintage fashion choices which have been donated by the public to raise vital funds for the charity. Every purchase made has a positive impact on the environment, and also local families who rely on the care and support of Little Havens.

The shop has used reclaimed and recycled materials for the majority of its fixtures as the charity becomes increasingly more sustainable as an organisation.

Elizabeth Bedier the shop’s Assistant Manager says: “We’re absolutely thrilled to bring preloved fashion to the heart of Chelmsford, continuing to raise as much money as possible towards our specialist care which is a lifeline to so many local families.

“Since we have opened our doors, the response so far has been overwhelming, whether that’s customers popping in to have a browse, purchasing items or bringing in donations. The support has been incredible.”

“As well as high street items, we’re selling luxury, designer and vintage brands too. Labels include Michael Kors, Ted Baker, Ugg, Reiss, Hobbs, Levi’s and much more.”

“If you are a fan of charity shopping and you haven’t had a chance to visit, please come and see what we have to offer in our shop. It’s charity shopping reinvented and we guarantee you are in for a treat.”

Little Havens is a part of Havens Hospices, a county-wide charity which has 24 charity shops across Essex. This is the second store to open under its Re:loved brand.

Re:loved by Little Havens, is open 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday and 10.30am-4.30pm on Sunday.

The store is also on the lookout for enthusiastic volunteers who have some time to spare to assist with the running of the shop. For more information about volunteering please speak to the Shop Manager or email
