Calling All Volunteers!

We need new Volunteers in the Friends/WHH Shop urgently!

We are particularly looking for people to fill a new vacant regular slot of the 4pm to 7pm Thursday shift. It would suit two friends or a couple - although single Volunteers please apply and you might make a new friend! You will receive full training but it is a fun and social way to spend a few hours helping raise money for the William Harvey Hospital.

Additionally we are looking for a bank of ad-hoc staff - ones we can call on for sickness and holiday cover.

If you are interested in Volunteering in the WHH Shop, please contact Darren in the WHH Shop on 01233 633331 or pop in to the shop and speak to the staff and pick up a Volunteer Pack.
