Volunteer in your local shop

Many of our 400 volunteers give their time in one of our retail outlets across the region which just couldn’t function without their willing help.

Working alongside the shop’s manager, you’ll become part of our warm and friendly team which generates as much income as possible to support children, young people and families who need our support.

Our volunteers in our shops help with:

  • ensuring quality customer service
  • introducing Gift Aid to donors
  • promoting the Martin House lottery
  • serving customers
  • housekeeping and merchandising

In line with COVID regulations, our till areas have screens round them, and there's hand sanitiser and face coverings available for volunteers to use.

You can support us in a regular half day slot by giving a morning or afternoon a week, or become one of our bank volunteers if you can spare a couple of hours when we need extra help to cover. 

I'm interested. How do I become a charity shop volunteer?

It couldn’t be easier. Simply pop into or phone your local shop and arrange to meet up with the manager for an informal chat about the role. Alternatively, you can register your interest online and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch.

"Our volunteers really are the heart of our community shops. They bring so much talent, hard work, and fun to the role that it's a delight to work alongside them."
