We have 17 shops covering Gloucestershire, with plans to expand our numbers even further.  We are looking for volunteers for all our shops and we can be flexible to fit in with other commitments you might have.

We are really interested in volunteers who have specific interests - whether that's fashion perhaps, books, bric – a brac, music or accessories. Even if you can offer a limited amount of time each week to help us, volunteering is a great way to develop new skills, meet friends and  do something for a worthy cause – providing free care for those in our community with life limiting illnesses.

  • Shop Manager
