Local charity seeks volunteers for the busy summer holidays

| June 28, 2023

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity are seeking short-term temporary volunteers to help in their shops across Buckinghamshire over the busy summer holiday period.

Charmain Behan, Volunteer Manager at the charity, said: ‘With summer fast approaching, we are on the lookout for short-term ‘Summer Temp’ volunteers to support our shops during the busy summer period and to help cover when our existing volunteers go away themselves.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for those that might be back from university, in-between jobs or retired to make new friends, try something different and to give something back to their local community. So, if you can spare a few hours a week between June and September, please get in touch to find out more.

The Charity has shops based in Aylesbury, Beaconsfield, Buckingham, Chinnor, Haddenham, Hazlemere, Marlow, Thame, Wendover, and Winslow as well as an online retail team based at their Furniture Showroom in Aylesbury.

Patrick, one of the retail volunteers at the charity, shared what he would say to those thinking about volunteering with us, saying: ‘It’s a great opportunity to socialise and meet people. It’s a flexible working schedule and it’s good to give something back. It can make you feel worthwhile.

Further information can be found on the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity website at https://www.fnhospice.org.uk/volunteer or by dropping into your local shop to speak to the Shop Manager.
