A young girl will be taking centre stage at the grand opening of a new charity shop on tomorrow morning.

As one of their patients, Georgia Leonard, seven, of Radlett has been asked to officially open the new Keech Hospice shop in the village at 10.30am.

Georgia has multiple conditions, including a heart condition and dilated Myocardiopathy, and lost her twin at just eight months old.

Her mother, Claire, said: “Georgia is very excited to be opening the new shop and has told all her friends about the opening. This is just once more way that we can make more amazing memories with Georgia!

“I think Keech is a really important place, especially since it covers such a big area and looks after so many children.”

She said it meant the world to all the children who went to Keech and added: “When Georgia is really poorly, it’s really important to be able to come here, or to have someone on the end of the phone for help or if I just want to cry about it I know someone is there.”

The shop in Watling Street will stock clothes, gifts and bric a brac.

Manager, Lana Wozencraft, said: “When you shop at this great new store, or any one of our charity shops, you can feel good knowing the proceeds from your purchases are going directly to support children in your local community.”

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
