East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices is poised to open it’s biggest ever shop next month but needs volunteers to ensure it can open on time.

The charity already has 14 shops in East Anglia – including seven across Suffolk and Essex – all of which rely on a team of dedicated volunteers.

The new shop in Hadleigh, which will be located at 53 High Street, will be the 15th EACH shop to open and will also be the biggest to date.

Volunteer recruitment days are taking place at the shop on September 27 and 28 between 10 and 3pm and no retail experience is necessary for potential team members.

EACH retail manager Sarah Throssell said: “Volunteers are so important to the success of our shops and I’d encourage anyone who is interested to come along to our open days to find out more.”
