A children’s hospice has launched a campaign looking for volunteers to work across its seven shops.
Richard House needs staff for all its outlets, including those in Heathway and Green Lane, Dagenham and Faircross Parade, Barking.
Anyone over 16 is welcome to apply and no previous experience is necessary. Volunteers are expected to work at least three hours a week.
Hajeera Begum started volunteering at the Barking shop last year and finds it is helping her to improve her English.
Mo Chapman started seven weeks ago.
