- Customer service assistants
- Till work
Volunteer hours of work are usually 9am to 1pm and 1pm to 5pm however, we are grateful to receive any help during these hours and are able to be flexible.

“Why I volunteer”
“I enjoy my days here – I really do,” says Jane Foley who is part of the volunteer team at our shop in Upton upon Severn.
The former teaching assistant, whose husband was cared for by St Richard’s, has volunteered at the shop for two-and-a-half years.
Among her many duties are serving customers, sorting stock, helping with pricing items and making the tea.
She said: “I get to meet and talk to lots of people. I really do feel volunteering here is worthwhile – I’m doing something and I’m making a difference.”
