Commuters are now able to buy Christmas presents while supporting a much-loved south Essex charity as a new pop-up shop has been unveiled at a c2c station.

The shop, which is run by charity Havens Hospices, is selling an exclusive range of gifts including hand-poured candles, vegan soaps, designer scarves, and other Christmas goodies, with proceeds supporting families across many of c2c’s communities.

Area manager for the charity, Jackie May, said: “We’re really excited to be able to bring a new and exclusive range of Christmas goods to our pop-up shop at Fenchurch Street.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity and we’re so grateful to c2c for supporting us.”

She continued: “There are so many lovely gifts to choose from and we’re sure customers will love the products as much as we do.

“There is everything they need to find the perfect present from beautifully wrapped tasty treats from Tiptree to unique stocking fillers.

“There is even something special for our customers’ pets! Even better, each purchase made directly contributes to our ambition to be there for even more local people in the future who are living with an incurable condition.”

Havens Hospices gift shop is open from 10am to 7pm, Tuesday to Friday.

Asset and property director for c2c, Ben Martin, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Havens Hospices to Fenchurch Street station and are happy to help with the charity’s fundraising activities during the festive season.

“We will be welcoming several new retailers in the new year, which will see our major improvement works of Fenchurch Street station come to an end.”
