Shop Volunteer at Deja Vu in Malvern
Volunteers are needed to help work in the busy up-market dress agency Déjà Vu in Malvern which is run by St Richard’s Hospice.
The shop in Belle Vue Terrace now has a new manager, Kerry Humphrys who is keen to involve more volunteers in running the shop.
The shop sells customer’s good quality designer and high-end High Street clothing splitting the sale with the customer. Sixty percent of the sale price goes to St Richard’s Hospice to help funding care for patients and support for their families while the remaining 40% goes back to the seller. The shop also sells ladies and gentlemen’s vintage clothing.
Shops and Commercial Director for St Richard’s, Dan Corns, explained why Déjà vu is a departure from the traditional charity shop.
“We are very successful and very well supported in our charity shops around Worcestershire but we saw a niche in the market for a smart and innovative emporium and Malvern is the ideal venue. As our other shops, all profits from Déjà Vu will go to help fund the caring work of St Richard’s but there is also the opportunity for people to make money for themselves from the sale of items.”

St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative care for patients living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and supports their families. Each year the hospice team supports over 2,300 patients and family members in Worcestershire.
Patients are cared for in Day Hospice, the 16-bed In-patient Unit or in their own homes by a specialist professional team as well as many trained volunteers.
In the In-patient Unit specialist staff are on hand 24 hours a day to manage patients’ symptoms and where, if they so choose, patients may spend the last few days of life in comfort and dignity. St Richard’s is grateful for all donations towards the £6.1m required each year to continue their work.
Over the next five years the hospice plans to develop patient services to meet the specialist palliative and end of life care needs within the community including expanding Hospice at Home services.
