We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Retail Volunteer- Gullane

  • VO78110


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! Currently, we particularly need volunteers who would be comfortable using the till as part of the friendly team at our Gullane shop. This seaside shop is a community hub; for friendship, fashion & fundraising!
We have spots on Wednesday morning, Thursday morning and Saturday afternoon at our seaside shop!

Organisation aims and objectives

Bethany Christian Trust exists to relieve the suffering and meet the long-term needs of homeless and vulnerable people. Our vision is that through Christian love in action homelessness will be reduced and vulnerable people empowered to live independently within society.
