Volunteers needed at Trust’s shops

The county’s largest nature conservation charity is asking for volunteers to come forward to help with the running of two of its shops.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust wants people to lend a hand to help with the day-to-day running of its charity shops in Penkridge and Codsall.

Typical roles for volunteers could include till duties, sorting through and preparing stock, customer services, displays and promoting donations and Gift Aid.

The shops help to support the Trust’s work across Staffordshire, including running its 31 nature reserves, its conservation work and environmental education.

The shops opened following on from the success of the Leek store, which opened in 2015.

Maryjoy Jones, Charity Shop Manager, said: “The volunteer roles would really suit a student who is looking at gaining some work experience or perhaps someone who wants to boost their CV.

“They would be needed for a minimum of four hours each week – although they can do as many hours as they can.”

Volunteers must be aged over 16 years old.

The Leek, Penkridge and Codsall shops are due to reopen on Monday 12th April.
