Description

At Save the Children, they believe in changing children's future. Their Save the Children Shop in St Andrews is a much-loved part of the local community and continues to be hugely popular with customers and supporters, thanks to the kindness and generosity of the wonderful volunteer team.

If you would like to volunteer with them all you will need is some enthusiasm and a desire to make a difference. The role is diverse, taking place on the shop floor and behind the scenes. Volunteer tasks include anything from sorting donations, steaming clothes, pricing products, managing the till, and helping with the window displays.
You can choose how much time you dedicate, no special skills are needed, and they welcome people from all nationalities and backgrounds.

Your donation of time, creativity and kindness can help them change the future for children all over the world!
