There are so many benefits that come with volunteering in our shops:

  • Being part of your local community, and becoming part of a team
  • Increased confidence and self-esteem, giving you a purpose and/or routine
  • Improved employment prospects by getting training in a key industry skill
  • Using your skills to benefit others
  • Free tea and biscuits!

Our shop volunteers undertake a range of tasks, including:

  • Sorting through donations
  • Steaming clothes
  • Serving customers on the shop floor and at the tills
  • Merchandising of the stock in the shop
  • Visual merchandising
  • PAT testing donated electrical goods
  • Ensuring the shop floor and back area are kept clean and tidy

We’d love you to join our loyal and enthusiastic volunteer team who help to run our shops across east Kent.

You’ll meet new people, make friends and know you are truly helping to make a difference to those who need Pilgrims’ care in the local community.
