Crook shop opened in June 2016. The Hospice retail team transformed a vacant unit in Hope Street into a bright and welcoming retail space, packed full of high quality new and pre-loved goods.

From clothing, shoes and accessories, to books, homeware and toys –there is something for everyone.

In recent years, the Hospice has expanded its reach across the whole of County Durham and we have seen an increasing number of Crook and Wear Valley residents access our services. The Crook shop will be the public face of the Hospice in this community, while raising vital funds for our services.
