We are opening a new community hub at the Churchill Shopping Centre in Dudley next month.

Opening on Thursday 27th June, the hub will include a pre-loved fashion store, a coffee shop and an area with free access to computers for members of the public to use.

We are delighted to be bringing our sustainable fashion store to Dudley. Savvy shoppers can browse a range of preloved women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, which offer great value for money while saving the planet!

If all that shopping leaves people gasping for a cuppa, shoppers can relax in the hub’s ‘Compton’s Coffee’ shop and watch the world go by while enjoying barista-style coffee, delicious cakes and a variety of sandwiches.

All proceeds from the store and the coffee shop will contribute to the specialist palliative and end of life care we provide to people in our communities and support for their families.

Every year, Compton supports patients in the Dudley area through our range of specialist services, including clinical care on our Inpatient Unit to help manage very complex symptoms. We also support patients out in the community, providing specialist care in the place they call home. Patients can also access our Living Well Service which provides emotional and practical tools to help them continue living active, independent lives. Patients’ families also have access to our services and specialist bereavement support.

The hub is also supporting the local community through an internet café area where members of the public will have free access to computers. The team are also looking for volunteers to join the hub where they can learn new skills, meet new people and gain confidence.

Harjinder Samra, our Associate Director of Trading, said: “We’re really excited about opening the hub and are looking forward to welcoming the people of Dudley through our doors. We’re delighted to be bringing our sustainable fashion to the town where shoppers can grab themselves preloved pieces at great value for money while supporting a charity that helps the local community, when they need us the most.

“We know that shoppers also enjoy a place where they can sit back and relax with a cuppa and here we have it all under one roof! We’re proud to be part of the Dudley community and to offer support to the people of the town. With the hub, not only are we providing free access to computers to help those who are experiencing difficulties getting online, but we also have volunteering opportunities where we will provide training and support for people to learn new skills, make friends and enhance their CV.”

The hub will be opening its doors on Thursday 27th June.
