The British Heart Foundation city centre furniture store is appealing for local people to donate the gift of time, to support the charity’s recovery from the coronavirus crisis.

Warehouse Warriors Wanted! - Are you someone who would like to stay in shape, help save the planet and raise funds to save lives? Volunteering in one of our local furniture store warehouses could be the answer.

We need warehouse operative volunteers to keep our stock moving from the van to the warehouse and shop floor, and back to the van for delivery when items are sold.

This role can be physical but it’s not just moving furniture around. There are other opportunities to help in our warehouse, such as warehouse logistics, booking stock in, building our flat-packed furniture, and testing electrical items – you can try different roles.
Telephone Admin Volunteers Needed - Are you happy to chat on the telephone and can get by on a PC? Looking for administration or customer service experience? With lots of support from the shop team you will be the first point of contact for customers, helping them with any enquiries, arranging collections for donations and explaining our Gift Aid scheme. You will also be using our online collections system to process online donation requests and helping organise our van teams.

You get a lot from volunteering too:

  • A chance to work in a friendly team, make new friends & meet a diverse group
  • The feel-good factor of making an invaluable contribution towards the British Heart Foundation goal to Beat Heartbreak Forever
  • The time to develop your confidence and interpersonal skills
  • The ability to gain valuable retail experience to add to your CV and learn new skills
  • Flexibility to fit with your lifestyle
  • Reasonable travel reimbursed in agreement with the Manager


Please note - we are unable to accept volunteers aged under 16 and we cannot accept volunteers with unspent criminal convictions or who are subject to criminal registers/orders
