It’s widely acknowledged that Willow Wood, like many charities, could not continue its work without support from volunteers. We currently have a wonderful team of around 650 volunteers who help in many different ways.
One area, however, where we really want more volunteers is in our retail division. With eight shops, two cafes and a huge distribution centre all needing to be staffed six, or in some cases seven days a week, there are always roles to be filled.
Sharon Hodgkiess, retail operations manager, said “Our shops, cafes and distribution centre are always very busy, and whether you’d like to help in a town centre shop dealing with customers or would rather be behind the scenes we’re sure to have a role to suit you.”
Donna Fitton, community volunteer officer agreed. “You don’t need to have experience as training is given. All you need is a friendly smile, a willingness to help and you’ll fit right in with our great team.”
If you’re interested in volunteering just drop in your nearest Willow Wood shop and have a chat to the manager. We can even arrange a trial taster day to see how you enjoy it!
