Recruiting shop volunteers at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care

Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is looking for enthusiastic people in the community to volunteer at their retail shops in Ashley Cross and Westbourne.  

The Hospice’s Volunteer Manager, Nicola Garsden, advised, “We would love people in our local community to take up these fantastic shop volunteer opportunities in our Ashley Cross and Westbourne shops. Days and times can be very flexible to suit you and your lifestyle, but we try and encourage people to do shifts of approximately 4 hours.

If you have good people skills, can greet and chat to customers in the shop and are keen to learn how to use the tills, labelling, sorting stock and other fun tasks, we would love to hear from you!.

“All volunteers receive the relevant training need for them to fulfil their role and I am always available for Volunteers to ask questions, give help or listen to feedback.

Sound like fun? Apply online today at:

About Lewis-Manning Hospice Care

Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is in its 30th anniversary year, providing extraordinary care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Poole, Purbeck and East Dorset.

30 years ago, it was our founder, Mrs Marjorie Lewis-Manning, whose generosity and inspiration started Lewis-Manning Hospice Care, with a vision to help people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

Without the help of wonderful volunteers, the past 30 years would not have been possible. Their dedication and support have enabled so many people to receive the hospice care they need and deserve.

We offer a range of free hospice care services aimed at helping people to live well through their illness, closer to home.

These include:

– Day hospices, virtual and in person

– Creative arts & wellbeing support

– Lymphoedema clinic

– Breathlessness clinic

– Bereavement & family support

Every year we support nearly 500 local people and we develop new services, based on patient need and identified gaps in the area.

To do this we need to raise over £1.8m every year. Without these funds we could not exist.

Our important work increases people’s physical and social well-being, reduces isolation and loneliness, supports people to stay in their homes longer, and alleviates the huge pressures on family and carers.
