Volunteers wanted for Knaresborough charity shop

The Martin House shop in Knaresborough is making an appeal for volunteers.  

  • The Matin House shop in Knaresborough is looking for volunteers.  
  • The shop opened in July on Market Place.  
  • Martin House charity supports children and young people in Yorkshire with life-limiting conditions.

The shop, on Market Place, opened last July but is struggling to find enough people to help run the store.

The charity supports children and young people in North and West Yorkshire with life-limiting conditions.

Sunny Allison, retail area manager at Martin House, said:

“We’ve had a wonderfully warm welcome from the people of Knaresborough, who shop and donate items to the shop, and we’d like to thank everyone for their support.

“It’s been an amazing first six months for the shop, but we do need more volunteers to help us make it an even bigger success in the future.”

“There are lots of roles you can do in the shop, from keeping the rails full of clothes or operating the till on the shop floor, to back room roles like sorting donations or pricing items for sale.

“There’s a role to suit everyone, and if you only have a couple of hours to spare a week, you can still make a big difference to our shop – your contribution will help us to support families who need the specialist care we give.”

Anyone who is interested in volunteering, or finding out more, can call into the shop, call it on 01423 368058, or email volunteering@martinhouse.org.uk.
