Can you ‘Make a Difference’ to The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House? We are launching a retail volunteer recruitment campaign to help boost our volunteer numbers.

The Norfolk Hospice, which has eight charity shops throughout North and West Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, has been extremely busy since lockdown ended with record numbers of both donated items and sales. However, our volunteer numbers are down and we are still desperately trying to recover from the effects of the pandemic.

As a registered independent charity, the Hospice relies on our retail volunteers who kindly donate their time to maximise the Hospice’s income, which in turn raises much needed funds for vital patient care.

Rebecca Walls, Voluntary Services Manager at The Norfolk Hospice, said:

“We are extremely grateful for our amazing retail volunteers who currently donate 500 hours of their time each week. Volunteering has many benefits, including learning new skills and meeting new people and we hope that this campaign will raise awareness in our local community of these benefits and help us to grow our team.

“Volunteers get to work with a great bunch of people, be part of a much loved local charity and make a difference to the lives of the people we care for and their families by helping our retail team raise a significant amount of money for the charity.”

“There are various roles that volunteers carry out, including sorting and pricing, preparing and tidying the items on sale, listing on eBay and till work.”
