Our Volunteers assist them in offering the goods at the Shop to needy individuals and families with a friendly face and lively banter. It is a great way for them to interract with the people they wish to serve and a lot of warmth and frienship has been generated as a result. The shop offers local employment and volunteering opportunities and provides a visible presence of Christian concern. It also greatly helps to reduce the amount of materials that would otherwise end up in landfill.
