Volunteers urgently needed

Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland’s new outlet store at 80 Castle Street in Forfar has attracted lots of interest since it opened in early August.

The store now urgently needs volunteers during the week and on Saturdays to help sort and price donations and serve customers. The shop sells a whole range of clothing, books and accessories at fixed prices and helps raise funds to support the charity’s work of improving the quality of life for people in Scotland affected by chest, heart and stroke illness.

Shop manager Tracey Brown said: “If you enjoy the buzz of bargain hunting and would like to see what it’s like on the other side of the counter we’d be delighted to welcome you to our volunteer team. Perhaps you have spare time on your hands or would like to get some retail experience to improve your CV. You’d have a great time and the satisfaction of making a real difference to the lives of people in your local community. Full training is provided as well as out of pocket expenses.

“We also urgently need stock and would like to appeal to the people of Forfar to bring us their unwanted items to sell in the shop. So if you’re having a clear out we’d be delighted to receive your donations.”

Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland improves the quality of life for people affected by chest, heart and stroke illness. All money raised in the shops helps fund vital local services. For more information about volunteering or to arrange collection of donated goods please drop into the shop or call shop manager Tracey on 01307 464892.
