Richard House Children’s Hospice shop in Vicarage Field shopping centre is appealing for people to give up a few hours each week to help them stay open.

The charity offers palliative care to children with serious illnesses in north and east London and this year needs to raise £3.5 million to run its services.

Jessica Hillsden, the shop’s new manager, said: “Whether you are looking to meet new people, get out of the house for a few hours during the week, gain valuable experience for your CV or learn new skills, volunteering at our shop is the perfect opportunity.

“Together we can raise as much money as possible to help life-limited children and their families.”

To apply call 020 7511 0222.
