We recently covered the opening of John Taylor Hospice’s second retail outlet. JTH has now announced that its third shop to open this year will be in Castle Bromwich and will open in December.

The organisation is is looking for people willing to give a few hours each week to help make the new shop a success. 

Volunteers will be given the opportunity to gain National Vocational Qualifications in retail and customer care and will have the chance to gain experience in customer service, stock rotation, window dressing and other skills.

John Taylor Hospice Head of Retail Andrew Ray says: “Our store in Castle Bromwich is the third we have opened this year and it’s our biggest. Housed in two retail units at a prime shopping centre, we expect it to be very successful. People who volunteer will be joining a lovely team who are all helping the hospice make every moment matter for hundreds of local families.”

John Taylor Hospice provides specialist care for people living with a terminal illness and their families. Proceeds from the shops help to ensure that care into the future.

If you’d like to find out more about volunteering in the Castle Bromwich shop please contact John Taylor Hospice’s Volunteer Resource Co-ordinator Paddy Breen on 0121 728 6738 or send mail.
