Shop Volunteer Taster Week February 2018

Ever wondered what it's like to volunteer?

Join us 1 - 7 February 2018, at your local Children's Hospice South West shop, for an informal chat about what it is like when you volunteer in our friendly shop team.

We rely on our army of superb shop volunteers who help us run our 32 shops and raise much needed funds to support our three children's hospices. But with more volunteers we can do even more together! And we need your help so that we can raise over £1m for the care at the hospices. Each and every volunteer helps make such a difference, plus many tell us that they get something really valuable from volunteering too.

Whether you're looking to do good, to meet new people or just challenge yourself to try something new - volunteering could be for you.

Each day from 1 - 7 February your local CHSW shop will be championing all things volunteering. Pop in for an informal cup of tea and a chat, meet other volunteers or even try out a taster session to see the kind of things you might want to do when volunteering.

I never thought there would be so many different things to do in a shop, it's not all being about being on the till. I've made so many friends here. I know I'm helping the hospice but I get so much from it too.

Pop in to your local shop anytime during shop opening hours or contact us for an informal chat on 01271 313319

As a volunteer you can also learn new skills, gain experience of working with a charity and boost your CV, build your confidence, meet new people and most importantly, have fun while making a valuable difference to children and families across the South West.

If you have time to give we would love to hear from you. We welcome volunteers of all ages and experiences.
