Description

Consider yourself at home surrounded by dumb bells? Or perhaps you've been meaning to get fit but can't deal with the gym? If you want to get fit whilst saving lives and the planet, volunteering in our warehouse could be the answer!

We always need helpful people in our brand new Wantage Furniture store to keep donated furniture moving from our vans to our warehouse, onto the sales floor, and then back to the vans for delivery when it sells!

This role is physical and you will need to be able to lift light furniture items - but let us know if you can only do light duties; it all helps fund life-saving research and keeps thousands of tonnes of stuff out of landfill each year!

Aside from moving furniture around, we need help building our flat-packed new furniture, and booking each donated item on to our electrical stock file, so if you're handy with a toolkit and like to be organised, there are plenty of ways to help the shop raise money that funds life-saving research!
