Shop manager Carrol Foley said: “This shop could not exist without our team of kind, talented and dedicated volunteers.

“Being such a busy shop, we need to recruit more.

“Each and every new volunteer will be greeted by friendly faces and a warm welcome.”

All volunteers are given on-­the­-job training and the chance to learn new skills, develop existing talents and take on responsibility.

The range of work includes pricing and sorting stock and operating the till.

As little as two hours a week will help raise funds for Oxfam’s work coming to the aid of people living in poverty across the globe.
