Get into Charity Shop Volunteering!



Virtual Volunteer Information Session   

Friday 20 November 2020, 12noon-1.30pm online via zoom!

Cumbria CVS is hosting an online event for anyone interested in becoming a volunteer within a charity shop in Cumbria.

Come and meet a range of different charity shops in Cumbria who are looking to recruit new volunteers.

You will have the opportunity to find out about the range of different retail volunteering opportunities, e.g.  behind the scenes sorting donations, customer facing on the shop floor or helping as a cashier, digital assistant with online listings, community roles for drivers for stock collection, administration, etc.

Due to the pandemic a lot of the current charity shop volunteers are unable to return due to shielding or because they are older so need to stay home to stay safe so new volunteers are needed to step forward for just a few hours a week or whenever you can help.

If you have some spare time to offer and would like to make a difference in your community as a charity shop volunteer then this session is for yo. Find out how you can become a volunteer , the range of charity shops currently recruiting volunteers and the benefits of volunteering!

Retail volunteering is a fantastic opportunity to gain skills and experience, meet new people, be part of a team, enhance your CV and really helps to improve your self-esteem and confidence.
