A CHARITY shop in Rugby needs volunteers to help raise life-saving funds for people with cancer.

Members of the public are being asked if they can give some time to Cancer Research UK in Sheep Street.

Manager Alison Davies said helpers are needed to spare as little or as much time as they can.

She said: “At the moment there are 26 volunteers which may sound a lot but it isn’t that much when it is spread out and people can only manage a couple of hours.

“It’s a great shop to work in. The kettle is always on and the biscuit tin is always full. Volunteers can also know they are helping a brilliant charity.”

Alison said people can choose how much they want to give.

“Some people give a couple of hours a week and some nearly work in the shop full-time,” she added.

“Any help is appreciated.”

People aged 16 and upwards are wanted to assist on the shop floor, security floor walking, steam clothes, merchandise, customer care and till work.

“There is also processing the stock and ticketing,” said Alison.

Anyone interested is invited to pop into the shop to see the manger.

“I’ve always got a spare five minutes to have a chat with potential volunteers,” said Alison.

Anyone wishing to help or donate goods should telephone Cancer Research UK in Rugby on (01788) 542514.
