Marianne Parker, manager of the Shelter Charity Shop on Regent Street, Clifton, is desperate for new volunteers in 2020. After being flooded with donations from the generous local community, an urgent appeal for volunteers was sent out.
The call for new volunteers comes after the charities need for people to join them in the front-line of the shop by helping them to sort and sell the new stock. Ms Parker said “we’ve been fortunate enough to be inundated since Christmas, as people give away their unwanted Christmas gifts, or have a new year clean-out of their cupboards and drawers. We are getting some fantastic items through the door.” She then added “But our shop is kept going by our local volunteers, and now more than ever we could really do with your help.”
Shelter is a charity that helps over four million people a year struggling with bad housing or homelessness. They campaign to prevent these tragedies occurring in the first place. If you or anyone you know is struggling with this issue, then you can get advice from their website.
To become a volunteer, there is no minimum or maximum age to become involved. Anyone can join from young people, to new or expectant mothers, as well as people living with disabilities. Shelter provides full training and supervision to those interested in joining them.
