I heard about the volunteering opportunity through an employment support service. After a chat with Dawn the manager I started at the old town centre shop the very next week. I'd always done active jobs, like working in factories, on building sites and on the land at a fruit farm - but I've now added retail skills to my CV. On a typical day I might be sorting through donated items, operating the till, hanging and pricing stock - and I particularly like meeting and greeting customers, helping them to find what they want. So I still keep active and have met new friends who volunteer with me. And I still find time to play darts for a local team and support Wisbech Town.
