Retail Volunteer Drivers 

About the role

Our charity shops are run by a large team of dedicated volunteers who give their time and skills to raise vital funds for the hospice.

We are looking for a number of volunteer drivers to support our shops. A typical day will involve delivering stationary orders from the hospice to our shops using our hospice vehicle, redistributing stock between our shops and also supporting our shop volunteers with anything they may need assistance with.

In return we will offer you full training to do the job, as well as the opportunity to be part of a brilliant team who really do make a difference.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to a minimum of a shift per week. The shifts are typically from 9.30am – 1.30pm.

The role will involve some manual handling and you must have a full drivers licence.
