Do you have a passion to share? Are you ready to turn over a new leaf? Big C is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join its retail team, with opportunities locally at the Wymondham shop on Allenbrooks Way.

Whether you can offer a day a week or a few hours a month, if you like the idea of meeting new people, being part of a close community and helping raise funds to support people affected by cancer, the charity would love to hear from you.

Suzanne Comaskey, retail operations manager said “It doesn’t matter how much time you have to give, every little counts. We have a wide range of opportunities for all interests, including helping in the ebay team, sorting donations in the distribution centre, working in the boutique with high-end labels, or on the shop floor in the Furniture & Craft Emporium. There really is something for everyone so get in touch with us to find out how you could make a difference.”

No experience is necessary, just a can-do attitude and a willingness to get involved. Volunteering can be a rewarding way to spend some free time. You’ll learn new skills, be part of a friendly team, feel valued, and have fun!

Volunteer Marina said “I love all aspects of retail, from filling the shelves to helping customers, by finding them a good outfit, a good book or a special ornament. I also enjoy chatting to regulars, listening to their stories of life, love and sadly cancer, and how Big C helped, by being there.”

Big C’s retail outlets are the largest source of income to enable the charity to support anyone affected by cancer in Norfolk and surrounding counties. The team offers this support wherever it’s needed through support centres and community hubs, available on a drop in and appointment basis, a support line and online support hub, ensuring people can access support in whichever way suits them best, whether that’s for 1:1 sessions, counselling, exercise and nutrition classes or support groups.

Sign up today by visiting big-c.co.uk and search ‘volunteer’ or pop into the Wymondham shop.
