LONG service by volunteers at a Scarborough charity shop has been recognised with the presentation of special certificates.

They all help at the Sue Ryder shop in Falsgrave Road and the presentation celebrated Volunteers Week which takes place this week. (from June 1)

Fran Elliott, the branch manager, said: “Sue Ryder celebrates this week by giving out certificates to their volunteers for long service. Four of our volunteers are due these awards.”

The volunteers included the shop’s oldest volunteers, Molly Williams, who is in her 90s and has been volunteering for the past 15 years – she previously helped another charity for 10 years. The other recipients were: Anne Davies who has ben volunteering for 10 years, Mildred Horseman who has been volunteering for more than five years and Jacqueline Murray who has also been volunteering for five years.

Fran added: “We currently have over 20 volunteers who vary in age from 17 to 90 and come from all walks of life. During volunteers week we celebrate the work that they do and say a very big thank you to them all.”
