We recently held an open day at our Chester shop as part of Student Volunteering Week with the support of both the university and charity shop fashion blogger @Charityshopgirl.

Throughout the day students were encouraged to come and learn about what it is like to volunteer at a Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith Children's Hospices shop.

These included workshops with @Charityshopgirl, whose real name is Jen, to showcase the creative elements of second-hand fashion. 

The event was a great success with a number of students enthusiastically signing up to volunteer. 

We will be holding another open day at our Shrewsbury Harlescott shop on 24th March from 10am, where Jen will once again be joining us. 

Find out more about you can volunteer in our shops or pop into your local shop and say hello and start doing something amazing.
