At Zest, we offer a range of fun and different volunteer opportunities – search for treasure from our donations, take photos for Depop, put outfits together and so much more! We also attend lots of events each year from local markets to festivals like Latitude.
YOU WILL GAIN CONFIDENCE AND NEW SKILLS
Many of our volunteers have never worked in retail before and leave with lots of new knowledge to add to their CVs. There are plenty of new things to learn including how to give good customer service, merchandising tips and tricks and social media management . If you have a particular area that you’re interested in then let us know and we can cater your volunteer experience around that.
WORK WITH A GREAT TEAM
We’re lucky to work with a team of like-minded people passionate about sustainable fashion and the local community. Volunteering is proven to help mental and physical health and you’ll meet lots of new people. Many of our volunteers have made friends at the shop and we’ll be organising more social activities for our volunteers this year.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
By giving some of your time in to volunteer in one of our shops you’re helping to support young adults with life-limiting conditions using our service at St Elizabeth Hospice. Young adults receive specialist care and access to new opportunities which enables them to meet up, have fun with friends and live life to the full. You will experience a real feeling of achievement and discover the direct impact of your time spent volunteering.
SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE FASHION
Buying secondhand fashion is one the best ways to be sustainable. We’re trying to change the way people think about charity shops by creating a curated selection of donated clothing and homewares displayed aesthetically. By volunteering, you’ll be helping us to encourage more people to shop secondhand and become more eco-conscious.
