Description

Volunteering for a Weston Hospicecare Charity shop not only means you are helping out a local charity and building links with your community, it also is a great way to make new friends, get valuable work experience, build self-confidence or perhaps share your expertise!

There are lots of tasks that we need your help with. Some are obvious like serving customers, operating the till, sorting and steaming donated stock but there are other tasks such as window dressing, creatively displaying stock and being able to identify items which may be better placed with our online sales team.

Our charity shops are there to help maximise the income Weston Hospicecare needs to continue offering free end of life care to people in North Somerset.

Please come and help us make a difference.

Organisation Description

Weston Hospicecare provides palliative care for people living with a life-limiting illness in Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding areas as far afield as Highbridge, Burnham, Cheddar, Draycott, Yatton, Congresbury and Clevedon.

Our primary aim is to provide a quality of life that is pain free where patients can be treated and cared for by loved ones in a place of their choice, be that here are the Hospice, their own home or a care home.

All of the services we provide are totally free of charge, with only 20% of the £4.2 million a year running cost funded by the NHS. The rest is raised through our volunteers, shops and fundraising team working tirelessly throughout the year to support patients and families.
