Are you student interested in volunteering for work experience?

Do you have some time to spare on a regular basis?

Please consider whether you might have some time on weekdays or weekends on a regular basis to help in our shops or with our trolley service for patients.

Our services are staffed by volunteers

Help us by working in our shop selling:

  • Toiletries, newspapers, cards, sweets, cold drinks, biscuits etc
  • Second hand books
  • Occasional ‘table-top’ sales with donated goods
  • Barts memorabilia including glassware, tee shirts, sweatshirts, pens, cards, fridge magnets, playing cards

Our shop is in the outpatients department at Barts Hospital and is open Monday-Friday.

Join our trolley service:

  • Taking the shop to the bedside! We load our trolleys daily, Monday-Sunday, and visit patients on the wards so even immobile patients have access to snacks, newspapers and toiletries
