Helping people in crisis begins at your local British Red Cross Linlithgow charity shop. Full of gifts, clothes and even the odd vintage gem, our 330 shops across the UK are home to over 6,500 volunteers and 700 paid staff. Our team is bright and bubbly, and we love meeting people from all walks of life. Our aim is to serve every customer with a smile, and to make sure everyone that visits us has a great experience. We’re always aware that every penny raised in our little shop goes straight to helping someone in crisis.
Our shop volunteers are the first point of contact for customers when they enter our shops. You will be a welcome greeting for all customers providing assistance and ultimately helping increase donations. You will provide invaluable help through the running of the shop, keeping it stocked and attractively displayed. You can get involved as much or as little as you like by: sorting out stock; putting your own stamp on the shop displays or getting trained in order to serve customers at the till.
Being part of a huge fundraising effort is very motivating, you provide the best service possible by representing the British Red Cross to the local community and raise as much money as possible for the organisation. You even get a 20% discount on donated goods. Find out more by reviewing our website.

Everyone has the right to live life to the full. After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver through our services every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to.
Our shops and community hubs in Scotland help us raise much needed funds so we can provide our services to the people who need us. Every one of our stores relies on a team of volunteers to help run the shop and support our staff
Without the dedication of thousands of volunteers our waterways would eventually fall into disrepair, leaving millions of lives poorer. Would you like to volunteer with LUCS? Our team of volunteers love to keep active, meet new friends and do their bit to keep their local canal a special place. You can come along to the canal basin on a Saturday morning to discuss becoming a volunteer with one of our already active members. Even if you can only spare a few hours during the ‘open’ season (Easter to the end of September) you will be made very welcome.
