After 94 years, Hobsons, a much-loved family bakery in Reddish has closed its doors.
In 1929, founders Harry and Marion Hobson opened the shop as a general store, and later adapted the business to become a bakery.
The bakery is now run by grandson Martin Hobson and his sister Sally, making them the third generation to run Hobson’s!
They have been supporting our hospice by displaying collection tins inside the bakery and have managed to raise an incredible £3,900 for us over the last few years, thanks to the generosity of their customers.
We could not be more grateful for their support, which will help us to continue providing quality care for our patients and their families in Greater Manchester.
If one thing is for sure, the little Reddish bakery will certainly be missed by the community but we would like to take this opportunity to wish Martin and Sally all the very best for the future!
