Helping Hands Needed in Julia’s House Charity Shops

Are you looking to get out and about and make some new friends?  Would you like to support your local community?  Are you seeking a fun and busy work experience placement?

Volunteers are being called on to join the Julia’s House team and help out at the local charity’s high street shops across Wiltshire.

Julia’s House is Wiltshire’s children’s hospice, looking after the most seriously ill children and their families in the local community and at the charity’s hospice building in Devizes.

The charity relies almost entirely on donations to provide its vital care, so the funds raised by its shops make a huge difference – and it’s only thanks to the charity’s team of volunteers that the doors can stay open and welcome shoppers regularly throughout the week.

Helping hands are needed on the tills and behind the scenes, sorting donations in many of the charity’s shops, including Chippenham, Devizes, Salisbury, and Warminster.

Liz Thompson, Volunteer Co-ordinator for Julia’s House, said, “We’re lucky to have an incredible team of volunteers of all ages, and we’re looking for more people to join us. Volunteering has lots of benefits, from building confidence and gaining work experience, to making friends and having fun. It’s also a great feeling to be supporting your local community and your help will make all the difference to the seriously ill children and families we care for locally.”

She added, “There are lots of volunteering roles and new ones coming up all the time, so we’d love to hear from anyone who has a few hours to spare. And you don’t have to have experience to be a volunteer at Julia’s House, as we provide all the training you’ll require.”

If you are interested or would like more information, please pop into one of the Julia’s House shops, or get in touch with the Julia’s House volunteer team at [email protected]  or 01202 644220.
