Retail Volunteer- South Bridge

  • VO86121


We are looking for volunteers to join us in our charity shop on South Bridge, to help us raise funds so we can continue to support our patients and their families. This is an ideal role for someone who likes meeting new people and wants to learn new skills in a friendly and welcoming environment.
You will be helping us with the day to day running of our shop, including sorting, preparing and pricing donated items ready for display on the shop floor, serving our customers on the till and helping us spot unusual or valuable hidden gems among donations. If you have a passion for making a difference and are looking for a new challenge then this could be the role for you.

Organisation aims and objectives

Every day of your life matters, from the first to the last. We believe everyone living with a terminal illness should be able to get the most from the time they have left, however hard that may sometimes feel. We’ll be here for you and your family when you may feel like no-one else is, to help you cope when you don’t know how. Marie Curie Nurses care for you in your home, when you need them most, day or night. Our hospices are at the heart of communities around the UK. And our trained volunteers and advisers are here for you with practical information and support when you don’t know what to do next or just need to talk. We’ll be by your side with care and support every step of the way, bringing light in the darkest hours.
