NEWARTHILL actress Elaine C Smith popped into St Andrew’s Hospice for a sneak peak at the soon to open Little Doves Shop.

The Little Doves Shop will open in the next few weeks offering a range of hospice branded products and unusual items.

Elaine, who is currently touring in the Susan Boyle musical I Dreamed a Dream, said: “There is something for everyone, if you are looking for something extra special you really must come and see what’s on offer.

“I can’t believe that it’s only just August and I already have lots of ideas for my Christmas gifts.

“There’s Little Dove branded umbrella’s for the girls, pens for the men, tops and t-shirts. I may even buy myself one of the cook packs that’s also on sale.

“I’ll have my apron, recipe book, napkins and place settings, everything I need to have friends round for dinner, I may even ask them to make a donation for dinner to help raise much needed funds for the hospice.”

The Little Doves Shop will be open Monday to Saturday from 10am-4pm.

Shops area manager Irene Viola said: “We hope that lots of customers new and old will take this opportunity to visit.”

During her visit Elaine agreed to participate in an Audience with Elaine C Smith next spring to raise funds for the hospice.
