The store is hoping local residents will join its team and do something very worthwhile with their spare time.

The charity said volunteers will gain experience regarding customer service, processing, stock control and merchandising, and will be presenting people with certificates to prove they have these new skills.

Shop manager Angie Rowlands said the shop is currently working with Centre Employment Advisors to support this new initiative.
