Charity shop needs volunteers

The Can Can Bazaar Charity shop in Main Street, Ballymoney, are in urgent need of new volunteers.

They are urging anyone with a few hours to spare to get in touch.

Kim McAfee, shop manager, said: “Can Can Bazaar is far from your usual charity shop – it is so much more than that. Yes, it generates money for Compass, but, more importantly, it provides placement opportunities for people with learning disabilities in the local area.

“This gives people who often have limited social opportunities the chance to work in a retail environment, meeting the public and performing a valuable role within the community.

“We encourage our trainees to take part in all aspects of running the shop but we need volunteers to support them and to help them build their confidence and self-esteem”

If you are retired, in-between jobs, are looking to get back to work and would like to enhance your CV, a student looking for work experience or maybe you have a few hours to spare while your children are at school the team at Can Can Bazaar would love to hear from you.

They offer all their volunteers the chance to be part of a unique organisation and will provide training and pay your expenses.
