Here are the following current volunteering opportunities;
St John’s Hospice has a successful shop on St John’s Wood High Street which raises thousands of pounds every month for the Hospice. The shop sells second hand clothes, shoes, books, DVD’s, jewellery and bric-a-brac.
Retail Assistants: The shop is entirely run by volunteers from 10am – 6pm 7 days a week. Volunteer shifts are 10am – 2pm or 2pm 6pm. Retail experience desirable although full training is provided - would suit people with a cheerful disposition, who are fairly active and enjoy working within a team.
Key duties of volunteers include:
- opening the shop
- sorting and steaming items
- pricing items
- changing displays
- assisting customers
- processing sales
- closing the shop
Volunteers will gain a wealth of experience in retail, shop management and customer service and will work with a team of experienced volunteers.
Drivers: We are looking for volunteer drivers to collect bags of donated clothes, accessories and homeware from people in the local community who are unable to bring their donations to the shop, signing donors up to Gift Aid where possible. You will need to own a car or van with a clean license and a polite and efficient manner for communicating with the general public.
