The role

We are looking for volunteers to help process, price and fill our shelves with lots of bric- a-brac.

By having volunteers supporting our shops we are able to process stock and rotate it on a weekly basis. We are looking for people to help maximise sales, increase donations and raise the profile of Children’s Hospice South West. 

Tasks may include:

  • Processing raw stock 
  • Cleaning and pricing items
  • Helping identify collectable items 
  • Replenishing shelves 
  • Encouraging donators to gift aid their donations 
  • Being an excellent ambassador for CHSW

What we're looking for?

No qualifications or experience needed but the following skills would be helpful:

  • Good customer service 
  • Happy to be part of a team 
  • Able to lift small bags
  • A helpful caring manner
  • Honest, reliable, trustworthy with a flexible approach 
  • Respectful of others


Full training will be given therefore no specific qualifications are needed.

It is entirely up to you how much time you want to give. You may choose to do a morning or afternoon, a full day, or a couple of shifts a week. 

You will be volunteering with like-minded people, providing you with lots of social interaction, meeting new friends, learning new skills or using existing ones and gaining a new experience. You will receive regular updates from CHSW and be invited to open days and events. Above all you will be making a vital contribution to a much needed cause.
