East Coast Hospice’s shop, based on Market Hill, currently opens three days a week with the help of five volunteers.

Now they are hoping to recruit at least three more volunteers to open five days a week from Monday through to Friday.

The shop reopened at the beginning of October after shutting due to a lack of volunteers.

Annette Brightwell, volunteer shop manager, said: “People can volunteer here all day or half a day. People can do as many hours as they like.

“When we reopened we decided to do things differently so everything is a pound or less.

“It’s gone pretty well but if we can get more volunteers we will be open all week.”
The East Coast Hospice charity, set up in 2007, is fundraising to build a specialist palliative care facility for the people of Great Yarmouth and Waveney.

There are currently eight shops in the charity’s portfolio based in Diss, Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Bungay, Caister, Beccles and North Walsham.

The Diss branch is currently open Wednesdays and Thursday from 10am until 3pm and on Fridays from 9am until 3pm.
