Charity shops

Do you like dealing with people? Working as a team while raising money for the good of the hospital?

If so, then why not think about volunteering for a few hours a week at one of our charity shops?

We currently have three charity shops that raise money for Southend Hospital, one in Hamlet Court Road, the other at Broadway West, Leigh, with a new shop recently opened in Hadleigh.  We hope to have further shops opening in support of Basildon and Thurrock and Mid Essex Hospitals in the coming months.

We need more helpers to join the ranks of existing volunteers, particularly for the afternoons and for Saturdays at both shops.

Shifts run from 9.30am-1pm and from 1pm to 4.30pm, and most of our volunteers do one regular morning or afternoon a week.

Jobs include sorting stock and serving. No experience is needed and training and support are provided. All travel expenses are met. All shop profits benefit hospital patients.
