Vol­un­teers are needed by char­ity

Stockport Express - - Your Views -

A CHIL­DREN’S char­ity has ap­pealed for vol­un­teers to help staff their shops in Stock­port.

Barnardo’s is look­ing for peo­ple to fill roles at out­lets on Sta­tion Road, Chea­dle Hulme, Chea­dle High Street, Lon­don Road in Hazel Grove, Bramhall Lane South, Bramhall, Mar­ket Street, Marple and Cas­tle Street in Edge­ley.

The stores are a cru­cial source of in­come for the char­ity, which pro­vides ser­vices for some of the area’s most vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren.

Karen Tasker, store man­ager at Chea­dle Hulme, said: “Vol­un­teers are the back­bone of our shops and we would not be able to do what we do with­out them.”

“Vol­un­teer­ing in one of our shops can of­fer a num­ber of dif­fer­ent de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties – we can sup­port vol­un­teers to gain qual­i­fi­ca­tions and help them to progress.”
