Volunteering in our Charity Shops

Here are just some of the comments from the volunteers in one of our shops;

Fiona – thoroughly enjoys volunteering in our Chester le Street shop, enjoying the flexibility and the many friends she’s made ‘an amazing 4 years’, ‘I feel valued as a volunteer’, ‘my confidence has increased’, ‘the best decision I made’

Cheryl – finds the staff great to work with ‘the high knowledge, experience and high standard of retail skills such as cash
handling and customer service will help me find a career in the retail sector’, ‘ my confidence has grown’, ‘ everyone is lovely to work with at the RSPCA charity shop’.

Lesley ‘Lulu’ – ‘I have been working as a volunteer in my local RSPCA shop now for about 3 years. In that time I have enjoyed gaining new skills, getting to know the customers and make new friends. Anyone thinking about volunteering will be made very welcome, have fun and help to raise vital funds for the important work carried out by the RSPCA branch.’

Sylvia – ‘why I enjoy volunteering; being part of the community, worth while charity; meeting people and enjoying their company & banter!; learning new skills and building on existing skills; after retiring I feel useful, fulfilled in giving my time and others giving their time to me. The staff are very helpful, understanding and always ready to give the time to listen to you. You feel needed, appreciated and welcome, you’re part of a team that pulls together. They never forget to say thank you at the end of each day…’
