Hi, my name is Liz and I am a volunteer at Age Concern Central Lancashire’s latest shop at 2-4 Towngate in Leyland.
Having always worked in retail and owned and run my own shops, volunteering in retail seemed to be the natural progression for me when moving back into the local area. I had been thinking of looking for something, and when I passed the shop and saw the signs asking for volunteers I thought I would pop in and find out more about it and I haven’t looked back!
I would say that I absolutely love volunteering and really look forward to my time at the shop. It is fun, gets you out and meeting people, keeps your mind active and helps you learn new skills; it’s very rewarding.
It makes a huge difference to me that the work we do helps to raise income that goes back to support people and services in our local community.
So if anyone out there is considering volunteering, I would say come along and give volunteering a go; you won’t be disappointed.
If you would like to find out more about joining our team of wonderful retail volunteers please drop into the shop and ask for Lesley.
