We are very excited about our new Willen Hospice retail project, The Hangout! We hope to entice a variety of game-loving enthusiasts to our new shop in the Xscape complex in Central Milton Keynes.

Our  innovative new charity shop will be the ultimate place to “hangout” with a play pass giving access to retro games consoles, a vast selection of arcade games as well as traditional board games, offering something for all ages. The shop will feature great value new and pre-loved games, toys and accessories and gamers can refuel with light refreshments.

Leila Blaize-Smith, Willen Hospice Retail Project Lead, commented “We are very excited to be partnering with Xscape to bring this great-value family friendly retail concept to Milton Keynes. As with all our charity shops, we rely heavily on our amazing volunteers, and we hope The Hangout will offer a new way for people to support our charity.”

We are still on the look out for people with a passion for gaming for good, to volunteer their expertise in their spare time.

Lisetta Carpenter, Willen Hospice Volunteer Services Coordinator, adds “This is a great opportunity for anyone with a passion for gaming to come and support a fantastic cause and provide an excellent customer experience. Volunteers need to be aged 16 and above and be able to commit to 4-hour shifts which can be worked any day of the week. Full training and support will be provided.”

To take advantage of this unique opportunity and put your gaming enthusiasm to good use, sign-up online contact Lisetta at Willen Hospice Volunteer services on 01908 306998 or  email volservices@willen-hospice.org.uk
