Call for volunteers to help out at new charity shop opening in Harleston
St Elizabeth Hospice will be opening a new shop in Harleston.
The charity, which provides care for local people living with a progressive illness in south Norfolk and east Suffolk, will be opening a new shop later in the spring and is appealing for shop helpers and drivers who can spare a few hours a week or month to suit.
The charity will be holding a drop-in coffee morning for potential volunteers on March 18 at Rich Pickings in The Thoroughfare from 10am to noon.
Shop helpers’ duties include customer service, stock processing and till work while volunteer drivers are asked to collect and deliver donated items.
All funds raised through the shop will help the charity provide its services free of charge to local people.
If you would like to donate stock – such as secondhand clothes, books and bric-a-brac - you can drop it off between 9.30am and 4.30pm once the shop has opened.
The Harleston shop will be the charity’s 22nd shop and forms part of a retail expansion to generate vital income to help grow local hospice care for local people. Last year St Elizabeth Hospice shops opened in Halesworth, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth and they are well supported by local people. New shops are also planned for Beccles and Bungay.
