Tersia went on to tell the ladies the story of Stepping Stone Hospice & Care Services – how the organization that started in a room in her house has grown and evolved into what it is today. She also highlighted the many needs the hospice has, as well as the initiatives that have been planned this year to raise help funds, including a new charity shop, set to open its doors in the Alberton Mall on 1 June 2017 (across from Springbok Pharmacy). “We need second-hand goods to stock our shop,” she said, “so please consider us when you next clear out your cupboards or garage. We welcome all sorts, from books and clothes to furniture, appliances and more.”
