Retail Volunteer since April 2016
“I volunteered to get experience and help as my friend was in here and I also know one of the nurses. It means a lot to me to raise money and help. My mum was unwell and I was caring for her part time, and wanted to do what I could to help.
How do you think volunteering has helped your skills for work?
So many things! Working as part of a team is brilliant – having a laugh in the shop, we all get on. I’d never used a till before but now I can and I’ve picked up great customer service skills which has really helped me feel confident about getting a new job. There’s loads of satisfaction in knowing how much money I’ve helped raise and I love meeting and greeting the customers!
