Our shop volunteers are book collectors and fashion connoisseurs. They are listeners and friends.
They know that one person's unwanted clutter is another person's treasure.
As a volunteer, you'll serve customers, sort stock and make window displays. But the role is so much more than that.
Our shops are a local hub of activity. Older people visit to browse and chat when they have no one else to talk to at home.
And while all this is happening, you'll be helping Age UK raise vital funds to make the UK a better place to grow older
