We met up with some of our long-term retail volunteers to chat to them about their reasons for supporting us. Watch their stories below to find out the impact that volunteering has made on their lives.

"Volunteering has helped me gain the skills to start an apprenticeship."

17-year-old Tom has been volunteering at our Firth Park shop for several years. In that time he's honed his customer service skills, gained some impressive retail knowledge, and developed the knowledge and skills to start an apprenticeship at Cineworld.

"We were pals at first sight."

Noreen and Lynda are quite the team and are both regular helping hands at our Hillsborough shop.

Watch their video to see the surprising ways that volunteers can bring you friends, laughs and happiness in your community.
