Give the gift of time this Christmas

Christmas Shops 2012The festive period is the busiest time of the year for our shops, we're appealing for volunteers to lend a hand and make a real difference this Christmas.

Volunteers are essential to the success of our shops and play a vital part in the fight against heart disease. Each Shop needs an extra 40 hours help per week over the Christmas period, so any time you can spare will be greatly appreciated.

We have over 700 clothing shops and Furniture & Electrical stores, so there is a lot to do! Our shops have roles available to suit everyone. From merchandising our large range of Christmas gifts to selling Christmas cards; window dressing and helping with the Christmas raffle, our clothing shops are keen to hear from people who have a few hours to spare. 

There are so many great opportunities available in our shops this Christmas

If you’d prefer a more ‘hands on’ role this Christmas, our Furniture & Electrical stores could be the place for you. These specialist stores are keen to recruit warehouse assistants, electrical function testers, stock generators, telephone operators and sales assistants.

Our Retail Director, Mike Taylor, said: “The contribution our volunteers make is extraordinary – we simply couldn’t run our shops without their support. There are so many great opportunities available in our shops this Christmas - I’d really like to encourage people to make a huge difference by giving the gift of time. Whether you can spare a couple of hours or a couple of days a week, we’d love to hear from you. Your support is vital to us.”

For more information on volunteer opportunities please call 0844 412 5000 or pop into your local shop and ask for the Shop Manager.
