Local Hospice Care charity Phyllis Tuckwell is urgently in need of more volunteers to help at its Phoenix Court and Quarry Street shops in Guildford.

These shops sell quality second-hand items which supporters have donated, and raise vital funds to help the charity provide its supportive and end of life care to local patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer.

Volunteering at Phyllis Tuckwell’s shops is a great way to meet new people, get back into work-life after having had some time off, or retain the camaraderie of working life after retirement.

From sorting stock donations and pricing up items, to creating attractive displays and serving customers at the till, you’ll be able to brush up your retail skills and add something new to your CV.

“Our volunteers bring so much creativity, vibrancy and enthusiasm to our shops,” says Barry Young, Retail Operations Manager at Phyllis Tuckwell.

“Their wonderful ideas and suggestions, and the friendly way in which they help our customers, are so important to us and are really appreciated. We provide them with training and support to reach their potential, and never forget that without them we simply wouldn’t be able to keep our shops open.”

If you’d like to find out more, please contact Phyllis Tuckwell’s Voluntary Services team on 01252 729400 or email
