Seeking charity volunteers!

23 November 2012


Do you like dealing with people? Working as a team while raising money to help raise money for one of the best causes around – the fight against breast cancer?

If so, then why not think about volunteering for a few hours a week atSouthendHospital's charity shop in Westcliff?

The shop moved has re-opened in new, larger premises at183 Hamlet CourtRoad, next to Boots the chemist.

And we need more helpers to join the ranks of existing volunteers such as Diane Bromfield and Tony Collins, pictured here with hospital trustee Malachy O'Sullivan.

"Moving to this location was a good idea - we have bigger and brighter premises, more parking - including spaces outside the shop," says Malachy, who helps all day every Thursday.

"This means we are getting more donations, and customers have actually remarked on the quality of the items we sell.

"There is a real buzz about the shop - especially when you consider the money we raise goes towards helping local women in the fight against breast cancer."

Shifts run from 9.30am-1pm and from 1pm to 4.30pm and most volunteers work one shift a week. Jobs include sorting stock and serving. No experience is needed and training and support are provided. All travel expenses are met.

Interested? Please call voluntary services on 01702 435555 ext 6135 (please leave a voicemail) or email volunteers@southend.nhs.uk

  • We are also recruiting for a part-time paid supervisor role, due to be advertised this week.
