Our Volunteers are the most important people in our organisation.
They are all unpaid and give up their free time to assist in doing all the things needed to keep the charity going and to make it successful.
Over the years, we have built a successful team and strong friendships have developed; some of them have been with us for many years.
We simply wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for our volunteers!
Our shops are our main sources of income and service hundreds of clients who hold shop accounts to sell goods and fashion wear, with plentiful donations also being received. Most of our volunteers work on a rota system to facilitate opening hours as detailed below:
Monday to Saturday:
10.00 – 13.00
Monday to Saturday:
10.00 – 14.00
A Team Effort
We understand that all our volunteers have `other lives’ and need time with their families and to pursue other interests, so it’s a challenge and a real team effort to work together and ensure we have adequate coverage throughout the year.
We realise all our volunteers join us for different motivations, but what is certain, is that whatever time is given, it makes an invaluable contribution to Cancer Care.
Help is always needed in other roles and can be ad hoc depending on your availability and skills. Please go to our “join us” page and see how you can volunteer.
We commit to doing the best we can to make our volunteers’ experience with us as a positive and rewarding one. We all have a passion and commitment to our charity which is crucial to our continued success.
Some of our Committee and Volunteers
I have been working at the Charity for about 6 years now. I was introduced to it through a friend who already worked there. Having experienced cancer in my family, it’s such a worthwhile course. Meeting new people keeps me motivated and the volunteers give their time to help the Charity do well and help the community that we live in. You can get more involved if you wish, or just do a few hours that suits you. I like getting involved and look forward to seeing the ladies I work with. I’ve made some lovely friends.Sandra
