Retail Volunteer - South Bridge

  • VO78314


Description

We are looking for volunteers to help us run our busy shop on South Bridge. Our charity shops rely on generous donations made by the public to raise crucial funds for Marie Curie. From clothes, homeware and books, to CDs and DVDs, we sell a wide variety of products. We are looking for volunteers to help us sort through all these donations, pick out the best items and prepare and sell them to our customers.

Organisation aims and objectives

Marie Curie provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. We’ve been carrying out this vital work for over 65 years – last year alone we cared for over 40,000 people across the UK. We can’t do what we do without our supporters, only you can make sure we can continue caring for people living with a terminal illness across the UK.
