A winter highlight, the much-loved Dove Hospice & Wellness x Karen Walker pop-up is back again at Playpark by Karen Walker Newmarket this Friday. From Friday 1 – Sunday 3 July or while stock lasts, Karen will host a mini pop-up in her Newmarket store, offering an eclectic edit of one-of-a-kind pre-loved hand knits to fundraise for Dove. Dove Hospice & Wellness fulfils an important role in the community, providing holistic care and support at no cost to people with a life-threatening or terminal illness from the moment of diagnosis.
The Dove Hospice & Wellness x Karen Walker pop-up, now in its fourth year, of the pre-loved gems that can be found in the seven Dove Hospice Shops as well as their online and Trade Me shops.
Karen and the team at Dove have combed through the generous donations to the charity to present an eclectic edit of quality hand-knitted wool sweaters, cardigans, vests and accessories for adults and children. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, but all feature a common thread; they were lovingly made and worn before being donated to Dove Hospice & Wellness.
The knits will retail for $80 (adults’ sweaters), $35 (children’s sweaters), $35 (blankets) and $20 (accessories) and all the money raised from sales will go to Dove Hospice & Wellness. Embodying community spirit, Regal Drycleaners, Karen’s long-time neighbours a few doors down, have once again kindly pitched in with their services and all the knits have been dry-cleaned, ready for immediate wear.
The Karen Walker store can be found at - 6 Balm Street, Newmarket, Auckland.
