Charity shop needs help

Charity Save the Children is appealing for volunteers to help out in its shop on Lerwick’s Commercial Street as it campaigns to raise money to help with the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Spokesman Rob McMillan said there were a number of “different and interesting” roles to fill and all applicants would be welcome. He said: “Volunteers from all walks of life are encouraged to get in touch and we’re always hugely grateful for whatever time they can give, even if it’s an hour a week.

“Our shifts are flexible to suit volunteers and the work is varied from pricing stock to creating eye-catching window displays to finding treasures among the donations and even promoting our wider campaigns to customers.

“It’s a great opportunity for someone to develop their skills in retail or build on existing skills – and to change the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children at the same time. Our volunteers are our most valuable asset and are the whole reason that our shops are able to remain open.”

Interested volunteers can contact Iain Cave on 0131 527 8216 or by email Cash donations are accepted at all Save the Children shops for current appeals in Gaza and Zimbabwe.
