Can you help us?
I am writing to you from Hospiscare, a local charity looking after patients with a life-limiting illness in the Exeter, East and Mid Devon area.
We are currently desperate for volunteers in our Sidmouth charity shop and I was wondering if there was any chance of putting something in the Sidmouth Herald to advertise for them?
There are many charity shops in Sidmouth, all raising money for good causes and all competing for customers and volunteers.
Amongst them is the Hospiscare shop, which is competing for your pennies and pounds to support patients in the local area with a life-limiting illness.
It raises funds for patients in Sidmouth to support them with nurses, therapy, day care, transport and more.

New manager Sarah is busy sorting donations that come through the door, restocking the shelves with summer dresses, teapots and cookery books, whilst having a good natter with the customers.
However enthusiastic Sarah might be, she only has one pair of hands and she could really do with some help to keep the busy shop going.

It’s a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and make a positive difference in your local community.
