Red Cross locally

Apart from “Vi Ses! Språkvänner i Linköping”, the Red Cross in Linköping arranges many other related activities that might be of interest. If you would like to try volunteering for any of our activities, you can contact Vi Ses! and we’ll ask the person in charge of the activity to contact you. For more information or to apply, just send us an e-mail or give us a call.


Second-Hand Shops

At our two second-hand stores, we sell goods that have been donated to us. The profit is used to finance our operations locally, nationally and globally. Our volunteers help sort the donated goods, set prices and work at the counter. The shops are located in Berga and Skäggetorp centrum. To see the opening hours, click here.
