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

Shop Assistant Volunteer - Wigan Shop/Occasions Boutique

A fantastic opportunity has arisen in our Wigan shop. If you are an approachable, friendly individual this role might be just for you!

Our Wigan shop, which includes our Occasions boutique, situated on Hope Street in the centre of Wigan, sells wedding dresses, occasion wear, bridesmaid dresses, party dresses and accessories including shoes, fascinators, handbags and more.

As a Volunteer Shop Assistant you will work under the guidance of a Coordinator with support from the hospice retail team.

You will chat to the customers and assist with their purchases.
