Shop Assistant Volunteer - Standish Shop

Many services provided by Wigan & Leigh Hospice are dependent on the goodwill of our generous volunteers.

Shop Assistant Volunteer - Standish Shop

Our brand new flagship Standish shop is due to open soon.

If you live in Appley Bridge, Parbold, Shevington, Wrightington, Standish, or nearby and would like to support your local charity, this role might be just for you.

The shop will have a variety of items for sale, including clothes, toy and furniture and will have a modern, fresh feel. There will also be a community hub area with easy chairs and information about events in the area.

As a Volunteer Shop Assistant you will work under the guidance of a Coordinator with support from the hospice retail team. A typical day will involve unlocking / locking the shop, taking telephone calls, using a till, moving furniture, replenishing stock and ensuring the shop is displayed in a presentable way to optimise income generation. You will chat to the customers and assist with their purchases.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to a minimum of a half day shift per week. The shop will be open Monday-Friday, 9.30am-3pm and Saturday from 9.30am to 12.30pm and we are currently looking for volunteers to cover every shift.
