ROTHERHAM’S newest charity shop is appealing for new stock and volunteers to help boost takings.
The British Heart Foundation’s new shop in the former WH Smith unit on College Street in the town centre was officially opened by the Mayor of Rotherham last Wednesday (2).
Staff issued an urgent appeal for donations of clothes, furniture — and time.
Elizabeth Dyet, volunteering advisor for the BHF, said: “There is a wide range of volunteer roles available; helping out on the sales floor, in the warehouse, as a driver out on the road to collect stock or helping behind the scenes getting stock ready to go on sale.
“Volunteering is rewarding, offering an opportunity to learn new skills and make friends with people from the local community.
“Our volunteers are at the heart of the charity and we simply wouldn't be able to continue our lifesaving work without them.
“Every hour of a volunteer's time could help make a difference to people's lives.”
Anyone interested in helping out should email firstname.lastname@example.org or drop into the shop.
