Lend a hand in 2019

Lend a hand in 2019

  Published to Other News on Jan 15, 2019

Some exciting volunteering opportunities have arisen at our Furniture Plus superstore on Manchester Road in Bolton.

We now have an opening for a volunteer Drivers Mate to help with collecting furniture from donors homes. The hours are from 10am–4pm and we urgently need help from volunteers on a Friday each week and full Health & Safety training will be provided.

Warehouse operatives volunteer positions also available. Volunteering for Bolton Hospice can give you life skills that will help you to move on whether it be looking for a job or to get out of a rut.

Our volunteers thoroughly enjoy their time at Furniture Plus; “It’s absolutely brilliant volunteering at Furniture Plus, the team are great to work with, it has given me a new purpose and I look forward to going in on my one day a week”.

Also, our new “super shop” on Hillview Road in Astley Bridge has been trading for 10 months and has been amazing for the Astley Bridge community – the shop just keeps getting busier an busier – it looks fabulous and is serving as a great community hub with The Old Bank Cafe next door.

Due to the success of the shop and the cafe, we would really benefit from volunteers who could assist in our store room, helping to organise and manage the donations. The hours for this voluntary role are 1pm– 4pm and we require help 7 days a week.

We would also benefit from someone who could volunteer to sort the clothes to get them on the shop floor as quickly as possible ready to make money for the hospice and to keep our customers happy!

We are appealing to the residents of Astley Bridge who may have some spare time and could help us by volunteering. Our volunteers say “It really is a great place to be, the staff and volunteers are friendly and it has given me a new sense of purpose and I’ve met new life friends!”

If this could be you, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01204 663063 for a chat about the roles available. You can also download an application form from our website.

Do something rewarding and fulfilling today and make that call today!
