Our fantastic volunteers are the lifeblood of our shops.
They take on every job enthusiastically and contribute hugely in making our shops so welcoming and friendly.
Sense shop donations come from individuals, businesses, house clearances and other sources. We always need people to select, prepare and price the best quality items to sell, to stock the shelves, help on the till, and serve and assist customers.
Our volunteers with their individual talents and interests are responsible for creating eye-catching window displays, or categorising books and music.
Those with a passion for IT are busy with our data entry system, while volunteers with expert knowledge are always welcome to check our bric-a-brac. We recently sold a Clarice Cliff art deco vase for Â£950. Would you have noticed it?
Being a Sense shop volunteer is a great way to meet people. You'll join a team of more than 1,500 people - but we can always use more help.
