Hospice Shops

The shops make a valuable contribution to our income and are staffed, in the main, by volunteers. We currently have shops in Rochdale (on Yorkshire Street and Oldham Road), Whitworth, Heywood, Middleton and Littleborough. As a volunteer you may be asked to sort, prepare and price stock prior to it going on sale, staff the sales desk, assist customers and even help with window displays. Retail experience is not required.
