Are you interested in volunteering and want to know more about it? Hear from some of our volunteers about how they help the hospice and what they have got out of the experience...

Over 200 volunteers support the hospice, providing crucial support behind the scenes and in our shops.

Volunteering can be an enriching experience. Not only does it provide an opportunity to do something which benefits others, it also brings with it a sense of personal fulfilment and worth. Volunteering also provides opportunities to use your skills in many ways and learn new ones.

Valerie, a volunteer at our Netherton shop, has been volunteering for seven years. She said: "I love meeting new people and helping people who come in to the shop. I volunteer at the shop two days a week and I really enjoy working on the till."

Chris, a volunteer at our new Breck Road shop, said: "I have volunteered in different charity shops for about five years now but helping St. Joseph's Hospice is fantastic as it's a local charity, helping local people and I like helping them to raise money."

If you have practical skills and want to use them by helping out at the Hospice, please get in touch!

What roles are available?
• Hospice: Reception – opportunities available 7 days a week, in 4 hour rotas from 8am-8pm.
