Interested in Volunteering?

 

Our shops are run by a team of dedicated volunteers without whom we would not be able to operate. We rota the shop volunteers on a shift pattern of either 10am–2pm , 2pm–5pm although we are flexible to individual needs.

 

If you do not want to man the shops, we are always looking for volunteers who are willing to help with maintenance and cleaning. There is always something to do in our shops.

 

If you can help out in some way please contact Amanda on 07846 204358.
