Nottinghamshire Hospice is celebrating its 35th birthday this year and provides high quality palliative care services to adults who have terminal and life-limiting illnesses, and their families and carers.
The hospice has twelve charity shops in the community, including one on High Street in Ruddington. These shops help towards raising the £3 million needed per year to offer services free to patients and their loved ones with the aim of taking care of their physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs. The hospice also provides support to families and close friends, both during the illness and in bereavement.
Yvonne at the Nottinghamshire Hospice Ruddington shop has been volunteering in retail for two years and says, “I volunteer because it’s fun, rewarding and a worthwhile way of giving support to a good cause”.
The shop is looking for more volunteers to help with customer service and stockroom duties. Expenses are covered and it is a great opportunity to meet new people, learn or develop skills and support a local charity.
For more information, pop into the shop for a chat with the manager or contact the hospice on 0115 910 1008 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
