Like figuring out how electrical items work?

by British Heart Foundation

Are you good with electricals? A bit of a sparky in your spare time? If you like figuring out how electrical items work and want to do your bit to help the environment, this could be the role for you. You’ll be plugging in and testing the electrical items generously donated to us, making sure they are fully functional and ready for sale – everything from record players to washing machines, TVs to toasters – they all need a quick test! Funding for researchers begins at your local charity shop. Now, more than ever, we are in urgent need of public support to enable us to continue our life saving research and help the 7.4 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases. This wouldn’t be possible without our fantastic volunteers. Our team is welcoming and friendly, and we love meeting people from all walks of life. Typical tasks include: • Plugging items in, turning them on and making sure all the functions work correctly • Giving items a quick clean so they’re ready for sale • Some light lifting of electrical items and help is on hand for the heavier items • Identifying poor quality donations for recycling • Identifying unusual or interesting items for online selling or auction
