A charity shop has issued a call out for residents to volunteer in one of its Irvine stores.

Barnardo’s Scotland is offering volunteering opportunities in their Bridgegate and East Road Retail Park shops.

The charity currently has volunteers nationwide from all walks of life, ages and abilities, but is keen to recruit more people willing to donate their time.

Magdalene Davie, Area Business Manager, is keen to hear from people willing to volunteer in one of her six shops in Irvine.

She said: “Volunteers are crucial to us. Volunteers are vital to running our business; in fact we simply couldn’t exist without them. They are an important part of our success and are an integral part of Barnardo’s Scotland.

“Volunteers can gain valuable experience and a lot of enjoyment out of joining their local store team.”

All Barnardo’s volunteers are given full training and support.
