Newport Charity Shop – Do you have spare time on your hands? Maybe you love to organise or have an eye for design? Our retail arm of the charity is busier than ever and with no plans to slow down we’d love to extend our amazing volunteer team.
We have volunteer opportunities ranging from till operation, stock preparation, online sales, recycling coordination and so much more. We have three shops based in Stone, Market Drayton and Newport and we’re also very lucky to have our community donation hub.
There are so many benefits to volunteering….

Hands on work experience
Being part of a new community, meeting new people and making friends
Be part of something special and help recycle pre-loved clothes, toys, books and other household items whilst raising funds for defibrillators in the community. If you would like to find out more pop a message over or call 01785 472224 Monday – Friday 0900-1700
