Save The Children are looking for people to join our lovely team in the Lerwick Save the Children Shop. The shop is led entirely by volunteers so we're always keen to expand our team and to raise as much money and awareness for the charity as possible.
The Sales Assistant opportunity involves customer service, cash handling, processing through donations, visual merchandising and there's the option to get involved in all sorts of things such as retail administration and social media marketing. No experience is required as all training will be provided, along with a friendly cuppa!
It's a brilliant opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills and share your own experiences. At the end of each shift you know that you've helped to make a real difference to the lives of children all over the world - it's hugely satisfying!
We are ideally looking for people who can commit to a three hour shift, on a regular basis. However, we can be flexible and if you can give any time at all we would be very keen to meet you and welcome you along to meet our team.

Volunteers provide support to patients and visitors in many different departments. There are w wide range of volunteer roles available and we will help to find one which suits you! Volunteers contribute to the well-being of patients and visitors by being a listening ear, and a helpful and friendly face welcoming people to the hospital. Our volunteers feel valued, make new friends and keep active in retirement.

CASE stands for Caring And Sharing Effectively and the project began in Kilmarnock in December 1999 as a charity with the vision that it would be supported entirely by volunteers so that all the money would go to local community projects & selected projects abroad with the aim of helping those in need. We need more volunteers to work in our charity shop assisting customers with purchasing of goods, preparing items for sale, providing customer advice & taking payments for goods. Volunteers will learn new skills & gain experience to add to their CV, meeting new people, other volunteers & customers will help to build self-confidence which can help people getting back into the workplace.

The RNLI has a network of local fundraising teams organising a wide range of activities and events which last year raised £14 million to save lives at sea. Each team is supported by a Community Fundraising Manager, although the range and frequency of fundraising events is determined by the team members themselves.
Becoming part of your local fundraising team could offer you an opportunity to improve your CV, meet new people, learn new skills or just have fun with fundraising in your community. Some of our team members have been volunteering for many years, some just join us for a few months – whatever their commitments allow.
Do you want to volunteer in your local community? Do you want to have fun assisting at fundraising events and activities, but prefer to be a team player rather than a team leader? If so, joining our fundraising team may be just the fit for you!
As a volunteer fundraiser you should enjoy meeting and talking to people, or want to develop these skills, and want to be an ambassador for the RNLI in the local community.
This is a great opportunity to really make a difference by raising vital funds for our volunteer crew members and lifeguards.
