Volunteers are being sought at our long-established shops in Bangor and Chester.

Shop volunteers make an enormous contribution to the work that we do in making sure no one faces the death of their child alone.

Volunteers form the backbone of our organisation and are highly valued as Volunteering Officer Diane Murr explained: “We couldn’t keep our shops open without the support of our brilliant volunteers and have various roles to suit all ages – you can even do your Duke of Edinburgh with us from the age of 13.

“You can serve our customers, accept donations and turn them into sales, assist our drivers and keep our shop floors looking great with creative merchandising.”

Great opportunities

Bangor Shop Manager Kirsty Camilleri has progressed from starting as a volunteer

Volunteering is a brilliant way to stay busy and keep skills current, it’s also a great way to make friends and meet people – who knows, it could even turn into a career as it did for our Bangor shop manager Kirsty Camilleri.

Kirsty said: “I started volunteering about 11 years ago when I was in University in Chester and enjoyed it so much I decided to pursue it again in Bangor where I am from. 

“I soon became Assistant Manager and then a year later was promoted to Shop Manager.

“I really enjoy building relationships, the shop really is a great place to work and volunteer and knowing we provide funding for Hope House Ty Gobaith gives a real sense of pride.

“We would especially love to attract more volunteers to help turn our donations into much-needed funds.

“Don’t worry if you’ve never worked in retail before as full training is available and a willingness to learn and a positive attitude are just as important.”
