Volunteer for HospiceCare


Volunteering for HospiceCare
Making a Difference Together

We have a fantastic and loyal team of 200 dedicated volunteers, who last year saved us over £300,000 in the time they donated to us.

As a local independent charity, we simply could not exist without our team of volunteers. Our shops at Amble, Berwick, and Wooler generate 20% of our annual income and with the exception of a Shop Manager, our shops are entirely supported by volunteers without whom we couldn't generate this invaluable source of income. If you have a few hours to spare each month or just a few hours on an ad-hoc basis and are thinking about local volunteering then please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.​​

You can contact our Central Support team directly on T. 01665 606515 or T. 01289 309997 or email us directly using the link below...
