British Heart Foundation Home Store Wigan
41-43 Mesnes Street


Role and Opportunity Details  (to apply for this role you must be aged 16+)

Cash Desk Volunteer

We fund around £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them.  Heart diseases.  Stroke.  Vascular dementia.  Diabetes.  They’re all connected, and they’re all under our microscope.

Our volunteers help us fund lifesaving science to improve the lives of families and loved ones living with heart and circulatory disease.

Volunteering with us is easy, flexible, and inclusive.  If you can spare a few hours a week, or a couple of hours occasionally, we’d love you to join our volunteer team.


Could you be the friendly face of your local British Heart Foundation shop?  With support around you and full training provided, you will be processing sales through the till as a cashier, talking to customers and thanking every donor – helping us continue to fund life saving research.  This is a customer focussed role where you will meet and interact with a wide range of people.


Just so you know, we are unable to accept volunteers aged under 16 or with unspent criminal convictions.  Please note this is an unpaid voluntary position in a friendly charity shop.


Specific Skills Required

Training will be given.
