We have now been successfully running the hospice charity shop in Newcastle Emlyn for the past three years with a significant increase in the yearly turnover.

The shop has become a community hub, and a large part of the day is spent talking and listening to the customers. The shop prides itself not just in terms of how much it can raise for our hospice service but also being an ambassador for the values and ethos of the hospice within our local community.

We create a warm, inspirational and inviting environment, giving the customer a positive experience and a beautiful impression of both the shop and the hospice. Even tourists make the charity shop a must-see place when passing by, and many come back each year, making their familiar faces part of the seasonal change.

It is also important to have a good understanding of the hospice and the services that it provides, as the shop is often the first port of call for those seeking help for a friend or a loved one with a terminal illness or for themselves.

The care we provide to both our staff and customers mirrors the ethos of the hospice.

What happens next?

We will be in touch in a few days for a follow-up chat and to arrange an interview. If successful, we’ll then ask for two character references from colleagues or professionals and begin your induction training. Then you’ll be ready to roll!


After you press ‘Send’ you should see a “Thank you” notification which lets you know the ball is rolling. Please don’t leave the page until then. You should also receive an email saying we’ll be in touch – but just to make sure, it’d be great if you’d drop an email to volunteers@skandavalehospice.org (that way we can keep a lookout for your form).
