St Luke’s Hospice is urgently calling for people to sign up and become a shop volunteer.
The 18 shops across Harrow and Brent are a lifeline to the Hospice and rely heavily on volunteer staff.
The shops have met all the government guidelines to create a safe shopping experience, for customers, staff and volunteers alike but they currently need more volunteers, calling on local people to support the Hospice by donating their time.
The charity is welcoming new people to join their highly dedicated shop volunteer team, which will provide valuable support to the local community and re-coup months of lost income due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Hospice has been on the frontline throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and the charity must significantly increase their income to safeguard its vital services.
The charity’s retail manager, Tim Bradfield, said: “We urgently need volunteers across all of our shops, to continue to deliver our care. If you’ve been furloughed, or you’re a student with some time to spare, or you just want to keep busy, volunteering in one of our shops is extremely fulfilling.
“St Luke’s invites the community to join our shop teams to unite with us during this incredibly difficult time. Without our hardworking, friendly, and caring volunteers, St Luke’s Hospice wouldn’t be able to offer all of the specialist care and support services to families.”
Shop volunteer roles are varied, and shifts are available to suit individual needs and commitments.
Volunteers can get involved in a variety of tasks such as; sorting through donations, steaming clothes, arranging window displays, and promoting the work of the Hospice with the local community.
