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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
