Volunteers needed at our Ludlow shop Vital volunteers are needed at our shop in Ludlow, and we're asking for anyone interested to come forward. The town centre shop needs people to work in a variety of roles, from being on the tills to filling up stock on the shop floor and receiving donations as they come in. Manager Emma Gibson is appealing for people in Ludlow and the surrounding areas to join the team and start making a difference in their community. “Volunteers are absolutely essential to our shops, not only in terms of helping with our day-to-day running, but also in creating our lovely family atmosphere,” says Emma. “It’s not all work and no play when you volunteer with us, it’s also a great chance to socialise and meet new people, while at the same time playing a huge part in supporting seriously ill local children and their families. “If you’re interested then please do pop into our shop and come and say hello.” A great place to volunteer Carole Atack has been volunteering at the shop for the last six years since retiring as a speech and language therapist with the NHS. “When I retired I really wanted to give something back to the community,” says Carole, 69. “My background in working for children drew me to Hope House and joining the team here. “I’m so glad I made that decision, it’s a lovely place to come and volunteer and I am here a couple of days a week. “It’s great to see friendly faces every week, have a chat, and contribute to such an amazing cause.” If you’re interested in volunteering at our Ludlow shop then please either pop in and speak to Emma or register your interest online.
