What is a Superstore?

It's a brand-new concept store and the first of its kind for the Hospice. Two thirds of the stock is furniture, both second-hand and new. Shoppers will also find electricals and homeware, and the usual blend of preloved clothing, vintage treasures, and accessories that the Hospice is known for.

Where is the Superstore?

The new Superstore is be located in the old Bathstore building on the Clifton Triangle opposite QEH school.

What sort of work will I be doing?

Our Superstore volunteers get involved in a wider variety of roles than our usual shops. We'd love your help with some or all the following:

  • Providing excellent customer service including using tills
  • Sorting and processing stock through the donation station
  • Arranging imaginative and attractive merchandising and window displays
  • Assembling and upcycling furniture
  • Researching and listing clothes on our Depop site
  • Researching and listing tech items on our ebay site

What hours can I work?

We welcome any amount of time you can give us. Some volunteers work a couple of hours a week, others might come in for 2 or 3 days. We can work with you on what time you can spare and fit volunteering around your existing commitments.

What skills will I gain?

You'll be able to gain useful experience and transferable skills in retail and customer service. This looks great on CVs and UCAS forms.

What training will I be given?

We provide full training and support is always available. We pride ourselves on looking after our volunteers.

What other benefits are there?

Volunteering is good for you. Evidence shows it's great for your mental and physical health! You'll make friends and meet lots of new people, gain confidence and self-esteem. You'll also be contributing to the 'circular economy', cutting down on landfill and encouraging Bristol to recycle.

Can it lead to a career with the Hospice?

Some of our volunteers have gained employment as a paid member of staff within our charity shops or with another employer because of the experience they've gained.
