l Sharon and Donna are wait­ing to wel­come new vol­un­teers IT is widely ac­knowl­edged that Wil­low Wood, like many char­i­ties, could not con­tinue its work with­out the support of its vol­un­teers.

We cur­rently have a won­der­ful team of around 650 vol­un­teers who help in many dif­fer­ent ways.

One area, how­ever, where we re­ally want more vol­un­teers is in our re­tail divi­sion. With eight shops, two cafes and a huge distri­bu­tion cen­tre all needing to be staffed six, or in some cases seven days a week, there are al­ways roles to be filled.

Sharon Hodgkiess, re­tail op­er­a­tions man­ager, said: “Our shops, cafes and distri­bu­tion cen­tre are al­ways very busy, and whether you’d like to help in a town cen­tre shop deal­ing with cus­tomers or would rather be be­hind the scenes we’re sure to have a role to suit you.”

Donna Fit­ton, com­mu­nity vol­un­teer of­fi­cer, added: “You don’t need to have ex­pe­ri­ence as train­ing is given. All you need is a friendly smile, a will­ing­ness to help and you’ll fit right in with our great team.”

If you’re in­ter­ested in vol­un­teer­ing, just drop in your near­est Wil­low Wood shop and have a chat to the man­ager. We can even ar­range a trial taster day to see how you en­joy it. Al­ter­na­tively, go to the vol­un­teer­ing page at www.wil­low­wood.info to find out more and to down­load a vol­un­teer ap­pli­ca­tion form. WIL­LOW Wood is hold­ing another of its fa­mous Clear­ance Sales at the huge distri­bu­tion cen­tre on Lang­ham Street, Ash­ton-un­der­Lyne.

Gemma Coy, the distri­bu­tion cen­tre man­ager, ex­plained: “If you’ve got an eye for bargain don’t miss our sale on Fri­day, May 25.

“Any­thing and ev­ery­thing will be marked down to rock bot­tom prices, and our sale items range from fur­ni­ture, clothes and bric-a-brac to small elec­tri­cal goods and much more.”

The sale also has a very pop­u­lar fea­ture – the chance to fill a bag with clothes for just £5. With shoes and bags from just £1, you can eas­ily cre­ate a whole new out­fit for less than £10.

Gemma warned: “Don’t be late, as the sale starts at 10am sharp and we’re open un­til 3pm. If you’ve not been be­fore, just put our post­code (OL7 9AX) in your sat nav. Be­cause we’re just off Old­ham Road we’re also easy to get to if you’re us­ing pub­lic trans­port.”
