Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin is urgently seeking volunteer retail assistants, van drivers and van drivers’ mates to ensure the continued success of its donated furniture shop on ‘Red Square’.

Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, said: ‘All profits from our Oswestry donated furniture shop help fund essential services for older people, many of whom live in the Oswestry 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 and 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.

This is a great opportunity to join a friendly, motivated team. Training and expenses are provided, as is on-going support. 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.
