Volunteer with Us
Our volunteers are vital to High Wycombe Shopmobility, without their help and commitment, we would not be able to provide and maintain our services.
What’s it like to work as a High Wycombe Shopmobility volunteer?
Charles Harrison has been a volunteer at Shopmobility for over 13 years
“It makes me feel good, it enables me to help less fortunate or less able-bodied people get out and about. I enjoy the socialisation and being part of a team. I feel extremely valued, and there are two mornings of the week that I look forward to.”
