Parents of cancer victim join hospice shop's celebrations

The parents of a music loving teenager who lost her fight against cancer helped a fund raising charity shop celebrate its birthday.

Phil and Bev Johnson were present when Windsor's Helen and Douglas House young peoples' hospice charity shop opened in Peascod Street.

Exactly a year later on Friday they returned. The couple live in Loring Road, Dedworth. Their daughter Claire who was 16 when she died was a regular at the Helen hospice in Oxford which caters for children up to that age. She was a regular visitor to its music room.

The Windsor shop was the 31st to open as a fundraiser for Helen House hospices and their 'brother' Douglas hospices that take people aged up to 35.

Also there on Friday was the Windsor shop's manager Judith Elston. She said: "The shop has been a great success during its first year. But we always welcome donations and we always need volunteers."

You can call Judith at the shop on 01753 860248 or pop in.
