Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd (SATCoL) is appealing for volunteers to help in its charity shop in Leighton Buzzard.

If your well-intended New Year’s resolutions are already long forgotten, becoming a volunteer at the Salvation Army shop in Waterborne Walk is a great way to extend the season of goodwill and do something positive for yourself whilst also giving back to your local community.

The Salvation Army’s Leighton Buzzard shop sells everything from clothes and accessories to books and household items.

Area manager for SATCoL, Julie Wardley said: “We rely on the generosity of our volunteers because they play such a vital role within our charity shops.

“Perhaps you have a flare for shop window dressing, maybe great customer service skills or even have a good eye for an antique? No matter your experience, there are all sorts of jobs that we need help with and we provide all the training you need.

“There’s also an opportunity to become a volunteer key holder, which is a position of responsibility with the opportunity to get involved in lots of different aspects of running a retail business. If you think you can spare any time at all, from a few hours to a few days a week, please do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.”
