HospiceCare North Northumberland

Caring for Life!

Our Wear & Care Shops are open 6 days a week - Monday - Saturday 9.00am - 4.30pm

Volunteer in our Shops

 We want working at Wear & Care to be fun, varied and rewarding, so if you have retail experience or are keen to learn something new, we’d love to hear from you. We have a range of roles available, including:

Working on the till - perfect for anyone who loves to give great customer service

Helping to sort and price donated goods - ideal for those with an interest in fashion or books or homeware.

Visual merchandising – for those with creative flair

Administrative support - we could have just the role for you if you like to make sure things are kept well organised

Steaming clothes and helping to keep the shop clean and tidy – straightforward tasks, but absolutely essential!

The minimum commitment we look for is just four hours a week, so if you have a little spare time (or a lot!) this could be the perfect opportunity for you. The process of volunteering at Wear & Care starts with an informal chat with our Shop Manager, Joyce Fairbairn, so why not get in touch today - the kettle’s on and we look forward to meeting you!

Time to volunteer?

  • Have you thought about volunteering?

    Our award wining team of volunteers saved us over £170,000  in the hours they donated to the hospice last year. 

    Infact, we would not be able to offer our vital clinical services without their generous committed and support.

    If you would like to know more you can  either give us a call on telephone: 01665 606515 or by completing one of our enquiry forms.
