Rennie Grove Hospice Care opened its newest charity shop in Bedgrove last month and is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to join its retail team.

Rennie Grove is a charity providing care and support for adults and children diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illness and their families living in Bucks and Herts. Every year through its 24/7 Hospice at Home services for adults and children the charity ​gives thousands of patients the choice to ​spend their last weeks and month at home, surrounded by their families and friends.

Rennie Grove’s services are provided at no cost to patients or families but in order to carry on providing the same high quality services for all who need their care, the charity relies on support from the local community to raise in excess of £18,000 every day.

The Bedgrove shop is number 27 in Rennie Grove’s retail chain and is one of its largest shops in terms of size.

Deborah Gould, Director of Retail and Trading at Rennie Grove said: “We are keen to recruit some more volunteers to help in our new shop. We can offer hours to suit other commitments and you don’t necessarily need to have retail experience as full training is provided.”

Rennie Grove welcomes shop volunteers from age 14 upwards.  Why not try before you apply and give a shop a shift? Rennie Grove would be delighted to offer you a morning, afternoon or day at the Bedgrove shop without obligation so that you can decide whether becoming a shop volunteer is for you.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Bedgrove shop then please then get in touch with the Volunteer Services Team on 01727 731000 or email volunteer@renniegrove.org.
