Would you like to volunteer in a fun and friendly environment where you get to meet new people on a daily basis?
Crosby Housing Association’s Charity Shop, on Lorne Road in Waterloo, is looking for new volunteers.
Volunteers can take part in a variety of duties at the shop, from staffing the tills and serving customers, to behind the scenes work such as sorting and pricing donated stock, arranging displays in the shop and stock control.
“Volunteering at the shop can be great fun,” says Kerrie Smart, Shop Manager “As well as gaining retail experience, our volunteers also get to meet lots of local people who visit the shop. As well as casual shoppers, we have our loyal regulars who often pop into the shop for a catch-up as well as to pick up a bargain!”
Crosby Housing Association are unique as a housing association, to have a charity shop that has been established for nearly 50 years. The Charity Shop is run by 3 paid members of staff and a team of volunteers and raises valuable funds that support the work of the Association across a range of tenant welfare, environment and community initiatives across Sefton.
The shop is open Monday to Saturday from 10am until 4.30pm. Any time that a volunteer can give would be most welcome, but the shop is particularly keen to hear from people who can cover half-day or full-day shifts.
You do not need to have previous experience of working in a shop, as full training will be provided.
