Dove House Hospice, a charity caring for people with life limiting illnesses in Hull and the East Riding, is appealing for new volunteers to help in the running of its Ebay store and online shop.
The Ebay shop has had a number of successes since its launch three years ago. Now Dove House are hoping to recruit extra volunteers with Ebay experience, to help with uploading items onto the computer, taking photos, and packaging and posting sold items.
The Dove House online charity shop, which was launched in October, has also met with success and has proved so popular that the charity is now looking for additional volunteers with IT skills, to get involved with the daily running of the department.
Lindsay Mason, Volunteer Services Manager at Dove House, said:
“We rely heavily on volunteers. Without them, we would not be able to care for individuals with life limiting illnesses throughout Hull and the East Riding. Dove House only receives funding for 91 days of the year and we have to raise the rest through public support. For Dove House to meet its fundraising targets, the work of our volunteers really is vital.”
Dove House Hospice is a palliative care facility based in Hull; it has been at the current Chamberlain Road location since 1989. It offers a range of care facilities that are designed to improve quality of life, from day care and in-patient care, through to symptom control for adults and terminal care. They also offer a wide range of complimentary therapies. The hospice is a registered charity and is therefore largely responsible for its own funding.
