The mother and stepmother of one of Camden’s favourite daughters have opened a new charity boutique shop in Crouch End.
Janis Winehouse, Amy’s mother, and Jane Whitehouse, who is the managing trustee at the Amy Winehouse Foundation, welcomed shoppers at Haven House Children’s Hospice on July 21.
The new shop is in Topsfield Parade.
A special print of Amy, created by Haven House user Harry Luxton, was launched to coincide with the opening.
The 18-year-old’s artwork was created to help recognise the hospice’s links with the foundation, which part-funds its music therapy service.
