Hospice On Lookout For Volunteers


St Ann’s Hospice has appealed for volunteers to help out in its shops.
The Heald Green-based hospice has 14 shops across greater Manchester.
Their shops generate thousands of pounds worth of income every year for St Ann’s – income which enables them to continue to provide care to local patients with cancer and other life limiting illnesses.
They receive just a third of their funding from the NHS, so rely on income from donations and their trading company to carry on their work.
Amanda Brooks, Trading Company Manager, said: “We have 14 shops across Greater Manchester and they are really busy community hubs – so busy in fact that we really need some extra support from willing volunteers!
“ It’s vital we recruit more volunteers so that we can continue to provide our services”
“here’s such a wide range of roles for people to support us with we’re hoping there’s something that will appeal to everyone.
“We need help with everything from window displays and merchandising to serving customers, organising books and DVDs, and collecting and delivering furniture.”
Anyone interested in supporting us by volunteering in the shop should contact Kathy Collins, Volunteer Manager at St Ann’s on 0161 498 3653 or email volunteer@sah.org.uk.
