This cheerful and welcoming team from the busy Dove House Charity Shop in North Point Shopping Centre all work together to raise funds for the hospice via charity retailing in Bransholme, Hull. They are a super team of scratchcard sellers too, encouraging shoppers to have a little flutter for an extra pound or two.
Speaking with a number of the volunteers, it’s apparent they all love working for the hospice and as part of the North Point team. They’re very aware of the cause and the people they benefit, as some have lost family members to cancer, fuelling their passion for the work they do.
The team describe the shop as having a community feel, and along with the familiar faces they see on a regular basis, they also see lots of new faces who they make feel just as welcome.
Our volunteers also tell of the skills they’ve learned and the friendships they’ve made. At least two of the volunteers aspire to be future Charity Shop Managers. We wish them luck and send our thanks to the whole team for all they do to keep our services available to local people free of charge.
