We are also now able to accept donations of pre-loved items in some of our shops. To find out more about how to do this, and which shops are accepting donations at this time, click here. Our furniture collections have also resumed and you can find out more about booking your slot for a furniture collection here.

Thank you to everyone that’s supported the hospice in our shops over the last few weeks, either by donating or shopping with us. We’ve been overwhelmed by your support and and our team is now busy sorting through the thousands of items we’ve been given and getting these out to our shops to sell.

To give all of our customers peace of mind at this time, in line with government safety guidelines, all items donated will be stored for 72 hours before we sort them and get these out to our shops.

About our shops

Prospect Hospice has 18 charity shops in and around the Swindon, Marlborough and north Wiltshire area. Between them the shops raise a significant proportion of our income – around a quarter of the total amount needed to run the hospice.

This vital source of funding is dependent on the continued support of our community, including the volunteers who help out in our shops and distribution centre, and the people who donate unwanted items for us to sell.

Our retail operation is run by an enthusiastic team of experienced managers and volunteers. We are always looking for volunteers to carry out various roles:

  • Shop assistants
  • Distribution centre processors (at our centre in Wroughton)
  • Van drivers
  • PAT testers (to help check donated electrical items)

If you’d like to join one of our friendly retail team, you can find more about the roles available below or contact our voluntary services team on 01793 813355, or email volunteering@prospect-hospice.net.
