Retail Volunteer

  • VO74985


1 mission, 6 shops, 1000's of donations. Our shops need you!

Retail volunteers are the backbone of our shops. A day can include sorting donations, operating the till or pricing stock- but every day, and every shop, is different! Each volunteer brings their own skills, experience and character to a role.
