VOLUNTEER

HELP TO RUN THE COMMUNITY SHOP

THE SHOP IS MANAGED BY ALI AND STAFFED ENTIRELY BY OUR TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS

 

Who can volunteer?

The short answer is anyone. The shop is for the whole community and the wider the range of volunteers, the better.

There are no special skills or experience required. Young people are warmly welcomed and there is no maximum age. We also enjoy training students who are working towards their Duke of Edinburgh Award.

 

Don’t be worried, we have two people working in the shop at any one time and training is provided.  We all make mistakes and you will always be supported! If you fancy giving it a go, pop in and see Ali, our Shop Manager, who will be happy to talk to you. Alternatively download or collect a volunteer application form and drop it into the shop, then Pam our rota manager will contact you to discuss a shift that works for you.

 

If you have a disability we will do our best to adapt the work to accommodate your needs.

The most important role is to be friendly and helpful to visitors and customers and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We also want you to enjoy it and have fun!
