Thames Hospice has launched an urgent appeal for new volunteers.
The ‘Be the U in Volunteer’ campaign is looking for people to help at the charity’s shops in the Thames Valley.
The charity is getting their plea out there by posting flyers around the area.
Each month, volunteers contribute about 3,600 hours of their own time at Thames Hospice’s 14 shops, but some shops have as little as 30 per cent of volunteer shifts filled.
Head of volunteering Jenn Johnson said: “Volunteers often describe their shop teams as a family unit, offering a sociable and fun place to put your skills and spare time to good use.
“We would love to add more volunteers to our team to help raise even more funds so we can help more local people at life’s most difficult time.”
As well as retail volunteers, Thames Hospice is looking for people to help with visual merchandising and particularly people who can move heavy items at the Homestore in Dedworth.
