A HOSPICE is looking for new volunteers to fall in love with charity work.

Work is set to be completed at St Helena Hospice’s new shop in Old Road, Clacton, on Valentine's Day.

St Helena Hospice is calling for people to volunteer at the new charity shop, which will stock donated clothes, shoes, accessories and general items kindly donated by the community.

Wendy Marcon, volunteer services manager, said: “Volunteering in one of our shops is a great opportunity for people to make new friends and develop their skills while supporting St Helena Hospice.

“We would love to hear from people interested in volunteering regularly for a few hours in the new shop or any of our shops across north east Essex.

"Buying items from our shops helps us support people living with incurable illness and bereavement, and we couldn’t do it without the help of our amazing volunteers.”
