Oxfam in Lymington is desperately seeking volunteers for their newly opened shop with a difference.

This is a great opportunity to volunteer in a new Oxfam shop that is aiming to create a slightly different experience for the customer!

You will be joining a small but growing team helping us to make the most from donations; offering fantastic customer service as well as sorting, pricing and preparing for sale a wide range of products.

As we grow our team our opening hours will increase.

Eventually we hope to open 7 days a week - 8 hours per day Monday - Saturday and 6 hours on Sunday, however your gift of time can be arranged to suit you as well as the needs of our business.

Whatever your interest, from customer facing to sorting stock please do get in touch.

Your help will make a real difference.

Volunteer and feel happier

Happy Sun

It’s official, studies by the London School of Economics have shown that people who volunteered as little as once a month reported feeling happier than the general population as a whole.

Even better, people said that the more regularly they volunteered, the more these feelings of happiness increased, with those who give their time on a weekly basis feeling the ‘glow’ most of all.

There are other healthy benefits too. People who volunteer and give their time to help others often experience improved physical health, not needing to visit the doctor so much and needing less medication.

They were also generally more physically active.

It’s not just great for physical wellbeing either, volunteering has also been shown to have a hugely positive impact on mental health, with people who volunteered saying that they felt less depressed, less isolated and much more involved in their community as a whole.

With all that it’s got going for it, volunteering really does sound like the best way to stay happy and healthy.
