St Barnabas Hospice is in urgent need of more volunteers to work in shops across Lincolnshire

St Barnabas Hospice, who currently has over 1,100 volunteers, is on the lookout for more people to donate their time and volunteer in one of 26 shops across the county.

The St Barnabas shops wouldn’t be able to function without the support of dedicated and hard-working volunteers, and this is a great opportunity for people to boost their CV, learn a new skill or even make new friends.

Particular areas of concern for St Barnabas are Alford, Boston, Louth, Lincoln, Skegness and Spilsby. These areas are in greater need of more voluntary support from the local community. Additionally, St Barnabas is opening a new shop and café in Spalding in mid- late July, and will be looking to draw upon the help of volunteers to really make this a success.

Caroline Peach, Retail Manager for St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“This is such a brilliant chance to join a local charity and really make a difference in the community.

“Our volunteers are all amazing, and they really do help us to ensure that individuals in Lincolnshire receive dignified and compassionate end-of-life care when they need it.”

As retail assistant volunteers, successful applicants will provide quality customer service to members of the public who purchase from and donate to the St Barnabas shops, as well as supporting the retail department in raising funds to help the work of the Hospice.

Volunteering opportunities with St Barnabas are available to anyone aged 16 and over, however those aged 14+ can also volunteer as part of a Duke of Edinburgh Award.
