Description

Volunteers can help out by serving customers on the till, sorting through donated stock, steaming and hanging stock, pricing items, window dressing and generally keeping the shop floor tidy. It is a great way to meet new people and raise money for Cancer Research UK. This is also a great opportunity for anyone who wishes to gain retail training and experience.
