Volunteer Opportunities

Please Note: During the Coronavirus situation we are placing new volunteers on a waiting list for when new opportunities emerge in this fast changing situation. Our shops are beginning to re-open which is creating new volunteering opportunities, but volunteering in other areas of the hospice is currently on hold as we put plans in place for once life returns to normal. If you would like to volunteer, now or in the future, we would love to hear from you, simply complete our Interested in Volunteering Form and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

NEW: Facebook Marketplace Volunteer

Here at the hospice, we're donated a host of wonderful items on a weekly basis to help us raise much needed funds. We're really excited to launch our Facebook Marketplace shop and we're looking for someone to help us as we branch out into this new arena of retail.

At a time when online retail is vital to ensure the future of the hospice, your time can make a real difference to local people and their families.

Volunteer Retail Van Drivers

Our Volunteer Van Drivers and Van Driver Assistants help with stock deliveries to ensure each store can maximise income to help fund patient care. The roles will include moving and sorting of household items and general moving duties.

Volunteers need to be 25 and over to drive our vans, have a clean driving license and be physically fit.

Volunteer eBay Assistants

Sometimes we are lucky enough to receive donations that would fetch more on eBay than in our shops. Your role is to research prices and list and manage items for sale on our hospice eBay site.

You will provide excellent customer service and going the extra mile to ensure that our eBay department is as successful as possible to maximise income to help fund patient care.

Volunteer Retail Assistants in our Penrith Shop

Can you spare a few hours to help us at our popular retail shop in Penrith? We currently have vacancies for several shifts and would welcome your help.

You'll also meet people, make new friends, improve your skills and learn new ones, using your free time in a positive and worthwhile way.

It's also a great way to enhance your career prospects and make your CV stand out from the crowd.

No previous experience is required, just a willingness to help. Why not pop into the shop and have a chat with the Manager?

If any of these roles sounds like you, or you would like any further information regarding this role or any other volunteering role, we’d love to hear from you.
