Why Volunteer ? Volunteering is a fantastic opportunity to:
Meet new people, learn new skills, gain a sense of fulfilment and personal achievement that comes from contributing to the community.
We currently have over 300 volunteers and are always looking for people with a passion for helping others and who have some spare time on their hands. Our volunteers are an important part of our team and help us to provide care, comfort and compassion to those nearing the end of their lives and their families and friends.
New Retail Shop in King's Lynn. We are delighted to announce that we are in the final stages of agreeing a lease to open a new Shop in King’s Lynn. This will be situated in the St Nicholas Retail Park. The opening is in addition to our current highly successful unit in the Vancouver Centre, and reflects the potential that we see in King’s Lynn at this time. This is an exciting next step for our retail operations and the new shop will be the largest in our current portfolio. Plans to open the shop are well advanced and we are on track to open towards the beginning of March. Stock Generation for the new unit is underway and we will also begin advertising key roles within the shop this week.
