Farleigh Hospice is opening a brand new Furniture and Clearance Warehouse in Maldon on 18th July 2018.
I visited this big new space and spoke to the Manager, Laura, who is excited about the venture.
On entering there’s a large area where clothes will be displayed and this will lead into bric a brac and furniture. There will also be a work space where furniture will be ‘upcycled’. Upstairs there is a bright, comfortable and airy office space that even offers a birds eye view over the shop/warehouse downstairs.
Laura told me that they are in urgent need of volunteers for various roles including Shop Volunteers, Furniture Upcycling Volunteers, Van Assistants, Telephone and Admin Assistants as well as Warehouse Assistants. Click on any of the links to find out more.
The Warehouse will be open to the public seven days a week and offers customer parking and even free WiFi for customers!
Farleigh Hospice has volunteering roles available across Mid Essex and these are as diverse as the volunteers themselves. As well as retail opportunities, volunteers can also help on the Inpatient Unit, the Day Hospice, and with fundraising events – to name a few.
