St Mary Bourne Village Shop and Cafe has an amazing super power.... their volunteers!



The simple fact of the matter is, that our shop would not be able to run without the dedication of our amazing volunteers.    Whether it's for one hour a week or more, they allow the shop to operate within its means and contribute to the happy, friendly atmosphere that envelopes the shop.

It's not all a one way street though!   Many of our volunteers tell us that they love working in the shop for the friendly faces, getting to know more people in their community and to know that they are doing a good thing to help the shop.

Join us!

It's been proven that volunteering is great for our mental health.  Volunteering reduces stress and increases positive, relaxed feelings by releasing dopamine. By spending time in service to others, volunteers report feeling a sense of meaning and appreciation, both given and received, which can have a stress-reducing effect.

So if you feel like doing some good for yourself and your community, come and join us.    Whether it's an hour or three a week, we know you'll find it fun and rewarding.
