Age UK in need of volunteers in Oswestry

Age UK seeks volunteers for its Shrewsbury furniture shop

Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin (Age UK STW) is urgently seeking volunteer retail assistants, van drivers and van drivers’ mates to ensure the continued success of its donated furniture shop in the Riverside Mall of the Pride Hill Shopping Centre..

Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK STW, said: “All profits from our Shrewsbury donated furniture shop help fund essential services for older people, many of whom live in the Shrewsbury area.

“We are looking for physically strong individuals to drive the van and to assist drivers in moving large items of furniture during collections and deliveries. We would love to hear from anyone who could spare a minimum of one day a week.”

Full and half day shifts are also available for volunteer retail assistants who enjoy meeting the public and providing excellent customer service.

Age UK STW provides training, expenses and on-going support as well as the opportunity to join a friendly, motivated team. Anyone over the age of 18, who would like to add retail experience to their CV or simply get out more and meet new people, is encouraged to apply.
