THE St Leonard’s Hospice charity shops are vital in raising funds for patient care, and we rely heavily on large numbers of dedicated volunteers to be able to keep them running.

We are currently desperately short of volunteers at our donation centre in Acomb and our shop in Broadway in Fulford.

We would love to hear from anyone who could volunteer even a few hours per week to help us out, and would be very grateful.

Even if you have never worked in a shop before, come and try something new.

Tasks may include sorting donations, delivering excellent customer service, working on the till, creating shop displays, merchandising and more.

It is a very rewarding and varied role.

If you are interested in finding out more, please phone the retail team on 01904 788777.
