Becca Haigh manages our fantastic House&Home shop and is also a healthcare assistant providing support to people in the place they call home. Here she shares her experiences and what’s new in store.
“Saint Michael’s is like a big hug- all part of the journey of supporting families together. I wouldn’t change working here for the world.
“I first started with the charity over 17 years ago caring for patients at our Crimple House Hospice. During the pandemic, when our shops were closed and need for care greater than ever, I joined the HOME team to support patients and loved ones out in our community.
“Even once our House&Home shop reopened and returned to its usual busyness, I continued supporting the HOME team in the evenings after my shift since I loved it so much.
“I’m so passionate about the care we give to people and it is a privilege to be a part of the team.
“Its vitally important that we raise as much money as possible so that we can support those in need, and our shops are a big part of generating those funds.
“We’re excited to bring a variety of items to House&Home this summer as we trial a new fashion collection alongside our furniture. It will be nice for people to have everything under one roof.
“With ladies’ clothes for £3 and £5, the range is affordable and stylish.
“We’ve used our experience guiding customers on how to upcycle furniture in their home in creating our new boutique fashion area. All the shelves and dressers are recycled items from the store. By not purchasing any new fixtures, we’ve saved materials from landfill and given them a new creative spin.”
