Our amazing retail volunteers help make our work possible but we need more volunteers give just some of their time so that we can help even more people affected by cancer. We’ve got loads of volunteer roles in our shops. You can pick one from the list below or have a go at as many roles as you’d like: * Customer Service Assistant * Donated Goods Collector * Driver’s Mate * Lead Retail Assistant * Shop Fundraising Assistant * Stock Preparation Assistant * Visual Merchandising Assistant So why do it with us? Well, Michael does it with us to gain experience and build his CV but also as some of his family have been affected by cancer. Julie does it with us because the shop was local to her and because of the friends she’s made. Carol chose to do it with us because she missed being part of a team when she stopped working and also to give something back. For each of them it’s the friends they’ve made and the laughs they’ve had that bring them back each week!
