Our shop is open 7 days a week and we're looking for volunteers to support whenever possible, with shift options of 10am to 1pm or 1pm to 4pm. This is a great opportunity for anyone that enjoys interacting with the public and would like to have a direct impact by helping to raise vital funds that support our young patients, their families and our NHS heroes at the hospital.
