Char­ity on look­out for book­store vol­un­teers

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

HOW would you like to help char­ity by work­ing in a book shop in a bustling shop­ping cen­tre?

South Bucks Hos­pice is on the look-out for vol­un­teers to serve at its brand new book­store in the Eden Cen­tre, High Wy­combe.

Even if you can only work for an af­ter­noon or a morn­ing per week, the hos­pice would love to hear from you.

Mary-Ann Leader, vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor at the char­ity, said: “It doesn’t mat­ter how much time you can give us – ev­ery lit­tle bit re­ally does make a huge dif­fer­ence to the lives of our pa­tients, their fam­i­lies and car­ers.”

“Pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence within a re­tail en­vi­ron­ment is de­sir­able but not a ne­ces­sity be­cause we can pro­vide train­ing in cus­tomer ser­vice. It’s more im­por­tant that vol­un­teers are keen to help the hos­pice and have an in­ter­est in books”.

“For those who have never worked within re­tail, this could prove an in­valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence as they will gain all the skills needed to then per­haps branch out and find a paid job else­where.”
