Volunteer in our new Midsummer Place shop

New shop now open!

We’re delighted to announce the opening of a brand new Willen Hospice retail shop in Midsummer Place in the MK city centre.

It’s located in the heart of a fashionable arcade, rubbing shoulders with top brand names and bringing excellent opportunities for jobs and volunteering. If sustainability, re-using and repurposing fashion items is important to you, this is the perfect place to be.

Could you volunteer for us?

When you join us as a volunteer, you’ll learn new skills, adding valuable experience to your CV. It’s an opportunity to meet people and give something back to your community.

There are flexible shifts available. We will provide all the training you need, whether it’s to operate a till, serve customers, price items or merchandise the shop.  We can also reimburse parking in the standard tariff areas during your shift, (purple zone) if needed.

If you would like to try it out by coming along to a taster session, or to find out more, please email us at midsummerplaceshop@willen-hospice.org.uk
Taster sessions are available every day at various times.

Alternatively you can complete the form below, mentioning Midsummer Place as the location.
