Our Charity Shops

Could you give your time and volunteer at our shops in Welwyn Garden City, Barnet, Stevenage and Hemel Hempstead?

From sorting donations, to serving customers, if you could spare a few hours we'd love to have you on the team. 

Please telephone 01707 259777 or email Cheryl, our shop manager, on volunteering@willowfoundation.org.uk to find out more.

We're also always in need of stock donations so please do encourage friends, family and colleagues to have a clear out. We have van collection available if you're not able to visit us in store or you simply have too much to bring yourself! 

Volunteering in your area

Volunteering from home: Spread the word: Tell people in your community about Willow, share our messages on social media, or even arrange your own talk to local groups!

Become a Willow Champion: We need more charity champions across the UK and you could help! You'll deliver talks to local schools, groups and businesses in your community and spread the Willow word. You'll be helping us promote Willow in local press, raise awareness and fundraise for more Special Days. 

Collection tin coordinator: We are in desperate need of collection tin coordinators to help us raise funds and awareness for Willow across the UK. You will be responsible for distribute collection tins in and around your local area, monitoring them, counting and banking funds raised and keeping in touch with fundraising team with regular updates. 

We have lots of exciting events throughout the year, including The London Football Awards and the Willow Senior Golf Classic. We always need volunteers to help with set-up during the day as well making sure the evening runs smoothly, too. 

To find out more about joining Team Willow as a volunteer please contact Hannah Gray or call 01707 259777. Thank you.
