Retail shop volunteer

We have a total of 14 charity shops. The charity shops team are dedicated to raising funds for the local branch and to help local animals. We think it is best to do what you enjoy, so you can either do one particular task or move around and do a few more. The work usually entails working on the till, steaming the clothes, pricing and labelling items, sorting items, and changing window displays. Training will be given.

About the host organisation

Hosted by: RSPCA Bury and Oldham Branch
Organisation Profile: The Bury RSPCA was founded over 100 years ago and helped local animal owners with veterinary fees, micro-chipping and neutering. The Oldham Animal Centre opened on the 6th June 1987 and was licensed to hold a maximum of 27 dogs and 48 cats. In 2005 it was agreed that the Bury Branch would merge with the Oldham Branch and together they would form a bigger and stronger branch. The Branch was renamed RSPCA Bury, Oldham & District. The team at the Bury,Oldham RSPCA give care and love to the animals in our centre and our knowledgeable staff provide for the individual needs of each animal until the day it can find a kind and loving new home. We are a separately registered branch of the RSPCA and are primarily responsible for raising funds locally. We receive no government funding or lottery aid. We operate 12 charity shops across the district and the proceeds from the shops help us fund our work.
