THE Julia’s House charity shop in Devizes is in need of more volunteers.

People who can help out at the shop in Maryport Street and help the charity which cares for children with life limiting illnesses and supports their families are in demand.

The charity, which has a children’s hospice in Devizes particularly needs people on Monday mornings and Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

Liz Thompson, Volunteer Co-ordinator for Julia’s House, said:“You don’t have to have experience to be a volunteer at Julia’s House as we provide all the training you will require.

“You just need to be friendly, reliable and have the confidence to talk to our customers and make them feel welcome.

“ It’s a great feeling to be supporting your local community and will make all the difference to the children and families we care for. We would love to hear from anyone who’d like to get involved at our Devizes shop.”

Julia’s House relies on public donations, fundraising and legacies for 95 per cent of the money needed to run its vital service. The charity has two hospices – one in Devizes and one in Corfe Mullen, in Dorset.

Anyone interested in volunteering in Devizes should contact Liz Thompson on 01202 644220 or pop into the shop.
