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.

What our clients say

 “It was good for me.  It helped me get to my job which meant I could gain more qualifications and I will now be in a much better position to progress my career.”

“Having the moped meant I could work all the shifts my employers wanted me to. I was in danger of losing my job as I could only work the day shifts”

‘I was amazed that within a week of being interviewed for the scheme I had taken my CBT and was riding around on my own moped, the scheme helped me grow in confidence and I was able to work and save for my own moped.’

‘Thank you wheels to work for accepting my son on to the scheme, my son was able to accept an apprenticeship in a rural location, learn a trade, work towards a  qualification and save up for his own moped all at the same time.’
