“Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time, but they have the heart”
Did you know that our shop is run by volunteers? Without our reliable band of volunteers we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. Not only do these amazing people run our shop, but they help out at our hub too – whether it’s unpacking deliveries, packing up sale or return stalls to go out to schools and churches, attending events, providing talks and workshops at local schools, or spending a day delivering our staff room snack boxes.

If you would like a paper copy you can collect one from our shop or call 0141 887 1881 and we can arrange for one to be posted.
We do not always have vacancies but we are always pleased to know of your interest in volunteering and will keep you on our database.
