Almost two thirds of our volunteers give their time in our chain of 24 charity shops which just couldn’t function without their willing help.
The shops are located across the Leeds area so there is bound to be one near you – please take a look at our shops list or contact us on 0113 218 5500.
Working alongside the Shop Manager, you’ll become part of the team which generates as much income as possible to support patient care.
- receiving, sorting and pricing donated items including clothing, books and bric-a-brac
- steaming clothes
- serving customers
- operating the till
- window dressing and merchandising
Volunteers work in shifts, often donating one or two mornings or afternoons per week but two hours once a week is also valuable. Shops are open Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm so there will be times which fit in with your other activities.
How do I become a charity shop volunteer?
It couldn’t be easier. Simply pop into or phone your local branch and arrange to meet up with the Shop Manager for an informal chat about the role. If all goes well, the Manager will ask you to complete some paperwork. Once this has been finalised, the Shop Manager will contact you with a start date and will introduce you to your fellow volunteers and arrange training.
Alternatively, you can download the application form and equal opportunities monitoring form from this page, and submit your application online. Please remember to state at the top of the form the name of the charity shop that you would like to volunteer in. Take a look at our shops list.
