A hospice is running a volunteer recruitment campaign to attract extra helpers to all aspects of hospice work, especially its charity shops.

The drive, by Teesside Hospice, comes in the run-up to national Volunteer Week, which runs from June 1 to 7.

Anyone who has time on their hands and would like to offer their services voluntarily, can call into any of Teesside Hospice's charity shops, or telephone (01642) 296 892 for more details.
