We are offering volunteers the opportunity to play a variety of important roles in the successful running of this exciting new enterprise.
This is a great opportunity to develop your skills and love of fashion with like-minded people. You’ll use your eye for fashion to support the development of this exciting outlet. As a key team member, you’ll learn more about sustainable fashion, build some valuable skills and experience to add to your CV and give back to your local community.

Receiving, sorting, valuing and pricing donations
Developing creative and engaging displays

By giving your time, you'll be making a huge difference to your community, helping us to raise the £6.5m needed each year so that we can provide care, compassion and support to patients, their families and friends. You'll also be helping to reduce the impact on the environment by providing an affordable, ethical and sustainable alternative to fast fashion.
