British Heart Foundation - Stock Room Volunteer
Details of the Charity:Share this
The BHF is here to Beat Heartbreak Forever. Funding research is how we change the game, and we have been funding science since 1961. Heart transplants, pacemakers, portable defibrillators, 3D printed hearts and valve replacements are all breakthroughs we have helped fund. As the biggest independent founder of heart and circulatory research in the UK, we are funding around £100 million worth of research projects every year.
Our vision is a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases. It’s a bold ambition, and we cannot achieve it alone. To beat the world’s biggest killers, we need the collective effort of millions. From across research charities, the health service, academia, government, supporters, industry and beyond – we are calling on the nation to get behind our strategy and help us deliver on our promises.
Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:
If you’d like to make a difference behind the scenes, if you’re a keen rummager or if you like things to be neat and tidy, then we have a role for you - helping in our BHF shop stock room. If you love a bit of ironing, then master the clothes steamer and watch those wrinkles disappear (it’s surprisingly therapeutic!), or become a clothes tagger extraordinaire, allowing customers to understand what item they are purchasing.
If you want a hands-on role behind the scenes or just fancy the company of other friendly volunteers our shop stock room is the place to be.
Typical tasks include:
- Preparing donated items for sale
- Using a clothes steamer
- Attaching labels and tags to donated items ready for sale
- Identifying unsaleable donations for recycling
- Keeping the sorting room organised and tidy
- 25% discount on all our donated items
- Retail Trust support
- Specialist training
- Certificates of Achievement
- Volunteering Hours to go towards the Brunel Volunteers Awards
