Retail Volunteer Vacancies
Sara Lee Trust Retail are pleased to announce, that you can now support us in a whole different way.
We are relaunching our eBay shop and have made some changes to the way we eBay. We now have an official eBay shop with charity status, allowing us to create community sellers who can support us virtually from the comfort of their own home.
You can now donate anything from 10% to 100% of the profit that you make to the Trust on anything you sell. So if you are having a clear out we would be extremely greatful for any donations made to the Trust in this way.
If you are new to selling on eBay our guide on how to get started is below. If you need any support or have any questions you can contact us at email@example.com or via the contact form at the end of this guide.
