Talk­ing shop: Vol­un­teers are needed to keep sales soar­ing

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

EAST Cheshire Hospice is on the look­out for vol­un­teers to help in its two shops at Thorn­ton Square and Ch­ester­gate.

The char­ity also re­quires as­sis­tance with its eBay sales and to help col­lect fur­ni­ture for the shops.

Staff are needed es­pe­cially for Satur­days when both shops get par­tic­u­larly busy.

No spe­cific ex­pe­ri­ence is re­quired and on the job train­ing will be pro­vided.

Retail man­ager Mick Prescott said: “Our shops and on­line sales bring in a sig­nif­i­cant amount of in­come for the hospice, help­ing us raise the £7,500 we need to stay open each day.

“We’d love to wel­come vol­un­teers of any age or back­ground and it’s a great way to gain ex­pe­ri­ence and meet new peo­ple as well as sup­port the hospice.”

A driver col­lects fur­ni­ture three days a week for the shops and a driver’s mate is needed to go along to help carry goods, so heavy lift­ing is in­volved.

Any­one in­ter­ested in any of the roles can call the hospice on 01625 610364 or pop into one of the shops.
