Retail Volunteer

  • VO90143


We're looking for friendly people who can spare 2-3 hours a week to help us in our Bo'ness charity shop. If you want to gain new skills, meet new people or be part of a fantastic team who go the extra mile to help us make a difference then we would love to hear from you!

Our shops are an important part of how we raise the funds we need to support our patients and their loved ones, and we need volunteers to help us continue to run our shops successfully. You will be helping us with all aspects of running the shop; sorting through bags of donations, processing items for sale and serving our customers on the till.

If you have an eye for fashion and design then we would love you to help us create attractive window displays with seasonal and other items, so that our customers want to come in and browse. You will receive full training when you join us, so no previous retail experience is necessary. If you love working with others and would enjoy volunteering in a place where no two days are the same then this could be the opportunity for you.
