Our busy fashion, books and music shop in Birmingham city centre has re-opened and needs volunteers.

You will provide invaluable help through the running of the shop, keeping it stocked and attractively displayed.

You can get involved as much or as little as you like by sorting out stock; putting your own stamp on the shop displays or getting trained to serve customers at the till.

Being part of a busy retail team to raise funds is very motivating, you provide the best service possible by representing the local community and raise as much money as possible for the organisation. You even get a 25% discount on donated goods.

Funding for researchers begins at your local charity shop. Now, more than ever, we are in urgent need of public support to enable us to continue our life-saving research and help the 7.4 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases. This wouldn’t be possible without our fantastic volunteers.

Our team is welcoming and friendly, and we love meeting people from all walks of life.

Typical tasks include:

  • Serving customers & providing good all-round customer service
  • Promoting our campaigns to customers
  • Promoting instore sales
  • Working on window and shop displays
  • Keeping the shop tidy, clean and well organised
  • Interacting with the general public


You get a lot from volunteering too:

  • A chance to work in a friendly team, to make new friends and meet a diverse group of people
  • The opportunity to make an invaluable contribution to British Heart Foundation goal of beating heartbreak forever
  • The time to develop your confidence and interpersonal skills
  • Gain valuable work experience to add onto your CV and to learn new skills
  • Flexibile hours to fit with your lifestyle


The BHF is here to Beat Heartbreak Forever. We are working towards a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases.
By 2030, we want to see advances across the spectrum of heart and circulatory diseases; we want to prevent these conditions from developing and we want those with existing conditions to have better, longer lives.
