The Williamstown Hospital Opportunity Shop supplied props for Australian film The Dressmaker.

It also raised $144,000 for the local hospital last year.

The op shop is urging people to come in and help celebrate its 60th anniversary during National Op Shop Week, which runs until Saturday.

Volunteer co-ordinator Nicky Cooper praised the dedicated team of 47 volunteers.

“They are well known within the Williamstown community for their warm smiles, friendly banter and willingness to take the time to find the items a customer is searching for,” she said.

“We see our volunteers as direct links in the community to the Williamstown Hospital.

“They are great ambassadors for their hospital and are enthusiastic proponents of the Heart of Williamstown appeal, a multi-million dollar upgrade of the Williamstown Hospital, which all funds currently being raised at the shop are directed towards.”

The appeal is aimed at raising $2 million for upgraded patient and visitor facilities.
