New Brownhills charity shop seeks volunteers

A new charity shop due to open on Brownhills High Street on 15 February is looking for retail volunteers to help with sorting and selling.

Run by John Taylor Hospice, the shop at 30 High Street will be open Monday to Saturday between 8.30am and 4.30pm.

The hospice, which supports people in Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Sandwell and Solihull, provides specialist care for people living with a terminal illness and their families.

The new volunteers will play a vital part in helping the store manager receive donations, organise and rotate stock and serve customers.

John Taylor Hospice Head of Retail Andrew Ray said: “We are really pleased to be opening our charity shop right in the heart of Brownhills. High Street is a vibrant and busy shopping area and we are looking forward to welcoming lots of customers.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who would like to join our team of retail volunteers and be part of our success story in Brownhills. Every person giving their time in our shops is helping us to provide essential care for patients and their families.

“Every day 600 people will receive the care they need from John Taylor’s teams and every person who donates goods, volunteers or buys from our shop is supporting that work.”

John Taylor Hospice retail volunteers receive full induction and training. For more information please contact the hospice’s Volunteer Co-ordinator Paddy Breen on 0121 728 6738, email [email protected] or see our volunteering webpages.

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
