The Charity Retail Association, in partnership with Wil-U, has launched a new service to match prospective charity shop volunteers with local retailers.
Members of the public who are potentially interested in volunteering can go to www.charityshopvolunteer.org.uk and sign up in a very simple and short process.
Charity retailers who are registered with the service and have vacancies can search the database and identify potential volunteers according to their location and specific charity interest (e.g. medical research, animal welfare etc.).
