Help the hospice raise vital funds by donating some of your spare time to help us sell donated items online.
This is an excellent opportunity if you would like to gain experience in eCommerce or share your specialist knowledge about pretty much anything. We receive a wide range of donations and therefore we need a diverse group of volunteers to help us get the best value for each item.
Volunteering for the hospice is also an excellent way to make new friends, have fun and build a sense of belonging. You’ll hear some amazing stories behind the items that have been generously donated to us.
What do our existing volunteers say about their experience?
“It’s a lovely way of meeting people in the local community, a great way of raising money and recycling goods”
We have various opportunities, which include:
- Researching the value of donated items and setting prices
- Taking photographs of items
- Listing items for sale on eBay and other marketplaces
- Picking and packing sold items
