Description

Every day of your life matters – from the first to the last. We’re a passionate, committed and diverse team of more than 4,000 staff and 10,000 volunteers, here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. We offer expert care, guidance and support, to help them get the most from the time they have left.
Marie Curie has numerous Retail shops across the UK which support fundraising for the work they do to provide care and support for people living with terminal illness and their families.

We are looking for active and helpful volunteers who can help us to process incoming stock and donations and get it ready to be distributed out to shops to support their need for a steady supply of good quality stock.

We need volunteers who are reliable, committed and happy to participate as part of a team. You will need to engage with the public face to face and via the telephone. You will also help to meet deadlines so that stock is dispatched on time.

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.
