Leonard Cheshire Disability – Alne Hall celebrated this week. Their charity shop in Easingwold has been operating for 21 years. The shop is always working hard to increase the amount of money that they can donate to Alne Hall.
Manager Bobbie Copson and Assistant Manager Wendy Edwards work with more than 20 volunteers serving customers and sorting and preparing stock for sale. The funds raised go directly to Alne Hall.
Some of the volunteers have been involved with the shop since it opened and give a significant amount of their time helping in the shop and supporting Alne Hall. Others come to the shop to volunteer as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award, some are on work placements and others come to work as a team, make new friends and support a worthwhile cause.
The shop window in Long Street is always bright and cheerful, encouraging prospective customers in and there is always a plentiful supply of stock for customers to choose from.
‘We always need good quality donations or if you are able to give a few hours a week to work in the shop please call in to see us ‘ Bobbie Copson – shop manager.
