Beckton hospice appeals for volunteers
A children’s hospice is appealing for volunteers to work across its seven shops in east London and Essex.
Richard House Children’s Hospice in Beckton supports children in and around London with life-threatening, life-limiting and complex health conditions and their families.
Louise Hamilton, head of retail, says the shops are a vital source of income for the charity.
She said: “Our shops provide a regular income that we rely on to help provide care for local children and support for their families. We are so grateful to our shop volunteers for their dedication and commitment, and we are looking for more people to join our volunteer teams and help make a real difference to young people in our community.”
Anyone over 16 can apply and no previous experience is necessary. Volunteers are expected to work at least three hours a week.
If you would like to find out more about becoming a Richard House shop volunteer call into your local shop for an informal chat with the shop manager or contact Tarcia Abreu on 020 7540 0225 or email email@example.com
