Volunteering Opportunities

Retail volunteering

Gain experience, meet new people

Volunteering with Willen Hospice can be very rewarding, and with a new shop opening soon in Midsummer Place, we need even more people to help us provide great service.

In retail, your role could include:

  • Operating a till
  • Helping customers
  • Pricing items

 

Volunteer at one of our other shops

Please contact the Team Leader at the shop  you are interested in, to find out more and arrange a trial shift.

See below for more volunteering roles

Other volunteering positions include helping at our warehouse, keeping our beautiful Hospice gardens neat, administrative support or patient care.

All our sites have procedures in place to make sure that they are COVID secure to ensure your safety. Find out how we handle data privacy for new applicants and current volunteers.

Your donation will enable us to continue providing care and support to those facing a life-limiting diagnosis, and to support their loved ones.
