Shop Volunteer – Thetford

Want to be a part of a charity that aspires daily to provide world class care for children with life-threatening conditions? Apply now!

Have you got a flair for fashion? A passion for books? A knack for bric-a-brac? Do you want to gain valuable retail and admin experience while supporting a fantastic local charity?

We are recruiting new members of our volunteer team at our friendly shop in Thetford. It’s a great place to meet new people, learn new skills, and raise vital funds for our important work supporting children, families and young people across East Anglia. We need volunteers to help out with all aspects of running the shop, including serving customers on the till, sorting and pricing donations, and office administration. No experience necessary, just a positive attitude and the willingness to get stuck in and work hard!

Could you spare some time to help? Just a few hours a week can make a huge difference. Shifts available Monday – Saturday, 9am to 5pm. Most volunteers work a four hour, half-day shift, but other options are available, and we can be flexible to fit around your other commitments – just let us know what works for you.

Babs Wilding

Babs Wilding, retail volunteer

Spending time here is very rewarding. EACH provides such a brilliant and much-needed service and it’s an organisation I feel very passionately about. 

Tony and Jane Reynolds

Jayne Reynolds, events volunteer

It’s so uplifting and can be very varied, which is something I’d say to anyone interested in getting involved. [...] It’s a great charity to support and the hospice is such a happy, positive place, contrary to what people probably think and expect. It gives families relief and respite at an impossibly sad and complex time in their lives.

John Skoyles 3

John Skoyles, fundraising volunteer

I volunteer because I know the tremendous difference EACH make to families at the most challenging time of their lives. Just one child’s smile or a parent's thank you makes such a difference and is worth more than any salary I could or did earn. We can’t make the children better or even understand what families are going through. However, we can travel part of the journey alongside them and do whatever we can to help
