If you’d like to volunteer for the Hospice, we’d love you to join our retail van crew!
We have a team of volunteers who collect and deliver furniture from donors’ houses to our three shops in Poynton, Handforth and Macclesfield, and back out to customers’ homes. They love what they do, it’s friendly and rewarding, and it really helps to raise vital funds for our Hospice – last month we raised £4,000 this way which makes a big difference to us, now more than ever. Our retail team is a great place to volunteer for three reasons:
- You’ll be a part of a warm and friendly team. Though the people you work with may differ from shift to shift, they are all friendly and committed, and we promise your shifts (they vary but are usually 9am – early afternoon), will fly by!
- You’ll be raising valuable funds for East Cheshire Hospice – each time you come in for your shift, you’ll be raising money that mean we can give patients and their families the very best end of life care.
- You’re raising the profile of East Cheshire Hospice – each time our van is driven in our neighbourhoods, it makes the Hospice that bit more visible, and with your great service you’ll be representing the Hospice to everyone you meet.
If you’d like to know more, please email Michele at firstname.lastname@example.org, call her on 01625 409647 or complete an application form here.
For those who wish to volunteer in the Hospice itself, we are keeping footfall as low as possible, so we are limiting volunteer presence for now. We may have caring roles in the future, with full training given – to express an interest in joining us in the future, please in a speculative application form or email email@example.comApply now

Fundraising Support Group Member
Support Groups are friendly teams of local people who work together to raise funds for the Hospice through organising bake sales, events, coffee mornings, distributing collection boxes – the ideas are endless!
The group can consist of two people or one hundred people and roles can vary within the group, such as Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and Volunteers. You will be supported every step of the way by your contact at the Hospice and is a great way of getting involved in the local community, meet new friends and learn new hobbies.
We’re not recruiting anymore volunteers at the moment, but we’re really looking forward to getting volunteers back in again as soon as we can!
So if you’d like to apply for a role starting after lockdown, you’re welcome to browse through the site, follow East Cheshire Hospice volunteers on Facebook for updates, or email Helena Smith firstname.lastname@example.org
Our companions help to deliver amazing care for people in the early stages of dementia as well as giving their carers a few hours break. We’re looking for volunteers who enjoy the company of others; can have a good laugh as well as being caring and compassionate. You don’t need to have had any previous experience of working with people with dementia but a willingness to learn is essential. You will be matched up with a person of similar interests for a couple of hours per week or per fortnight. No personal care is involved, and full support will be given to you throughout training and volunteering, so you can concentrate on enjoying making a real difference to the life of the person and their carer.
