Fancy supporting EACH’s fast-growing ecommerce operation by becoming an eBay or Amazon volunteer in Clacton?

A leading children’s charity is on the lookout for volunteers keen to support its fast-growing ecommerce operation.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has 44 bricks and mortar shops across the region, including one in North Road, Clacton.

The charity would love to hear from anyone interested in helping in the store there, by going through donations, spotting sellable items and listing them on eBay and Amazon.

The role would involve taking pictures of items and sending them to EACH’s ecommerce base in Thetford.

Clacton shop manager Nigel Entwistle said: “Selling goods online has become a big and fast-growing income stream for EACH.

“We’d love some extra help and, ideally, would like to find two dedicated eBay volunteers and another two to help on the Amazon front.

“It’s about spotting the potential of particular items and maximising sales, to help our charity continue its work caring for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across North Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.”

Anyone interested in helping can email Nigel via nigel.entwistle@each.org.uk or by calling 01255 446999.

EACH’S recently celebrated a week of record-breaking eBay success, selling goods worth £12,281.

In total, 539 items were sold with an average selling price of nearly £24.

It comes on the back of January being the second most successful month so far, generating £40,311.

EACH also has two shops in Colchester, one in Dovercourt and one in Halstead.

Notes to Editors

“We’d heard about EACH and knew they were a fantastic cause that had supported families we knew, but we never thought we’d be the ones that needed them! Sadly, as fantastic as it is, their service will always be required, and every child who needs their help deserves to have it.”

  • We care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, and support their families.
  • We offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies – at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich).
  • Our family-centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management support, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies and counselling, all meeting the individual needs of the child, young person and whole family.
  • We are recognised as leaders in our field, with a reputation for excellence and commitment to pioneering development and innovation.
  • We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income and this year need to raise £5.5 million from fundraising and £5.4 million in income from our shops. The year before the pandemic we received just 16% of our total income from statutory sources.
  • EACH Royal Patron – Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
