The new Hospice volunteers have already been sorting donation bags, stacking the charity shop’s shelves and serving customers.

Dawn Davies, the people manager at Tesco in Ledbury, said: “Everyone was really excited to volunteer, and we just wanted to get on with it and get stuck in.

Liz Went, Area Manager for St Michael’s Hospice Retail, said, ‘We are thrilled-to-bits that Tesco Ledbury staff have volunteered to support us. The Hospice shops are vital in raising the money needed to enable St Michael’s to care for local patients and their families. Because of all the people who support our charity shops our nursing staff can continue to be there for patients at a time when they need them the most. Opening on Wednesdays in Ledbury will make a real difference.’
