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

“I’d have really struggled without them”

“They’ve been ever so good to me and that’s why I wanted to fundraise and do something to help just like they’ve helped me.”

Philomena Sharpe

“The impact they had will never be forgotten”

“The community nurses were so helpful and they’re lovely people. They put my mind at rest and it’s such a comfort to know you’re not on your own.”

Jackie Day

“An angel sent into my life”

“I can’t thank Angie (patient and family support worker) enough for everything she’s done for us. She’s so reliable and professional – a wonderful person. She took away all these worries and was there for me in my time of need.”

Patricia Smith-Evans

“I’ve really enjoyed it”

“The FAB Programme has helped me to get fitter and my walking is better. Everyone is really nice at the hospice, they’re friendly and they’re good company. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in a similar situation to me.”
