Description

At Save the Children, we believe in changing children’s future, we operate in the UK and around the world to ensure children are safe and healthy. We support them to learn, grow and become who they want to be. Our shops help raise vital funds, and our volunteers are the leading force in making this possible.

Our Peebles Save the Children Shop has been a much loved part of the local community for years and continues to be hugely popular with customers and supporters, thanks to the kindness and creativity of the volunteer team!

If you would like to volunteer with us all you will need is some enthusiasm and a desire to make a difference. The role is diverse, taking place on the shop floor and behind the scenes. Volunteer tasks include anything from sorting donations, steaming clothes, pricing products, managing the till, and helping with the window displays.

You can choose how much time you dedicate, and we’ll give you training and support along the way. No special skills are needed, and we welcome people from all nationalities and backgrounds.

Your donation of time, creativity and kindness can help us change the future for children all over the world.

If you are over 18 and would like to be part of our wonderful team in Peebles then apply to become a Shop Volunteer today!

Organisation aims and objectives

At Save the Children we lead the way on tackling problems like pneumonia, hunger and protecting children in war, while making sure each child’s unique needs are cared for. We find new ways to reach children who need us most, no matter where they’re growing up. For a century, we’ve stood up for children and made sure their voices are heard. We wrote the treaty that sets out the rights of every child, and we’ve been upholding them every day since. We know we can’t do this alone. Together with children, supporters and partners, we work to help every child become who they want to be. Our network of shops across the UK support us in raising much needed funding and awareness for children all over the world. Join us and help change the world via sustainable shopping!
