Volunteers wanted

MANSFIELD and Ashfield folk are being invited to take part in a volunteering training scheme at a charity shop in Mansfield.

The Extra Care charity shop, which helps older people live independent lives, is looking for a key volunteer who will be able to gain valuable retail experience and work towards NVQ qualifications.

Manager Tony Smith said it was a valuable opportunity for people to gain experience which could help them get a job.

He says: “It’s an opening towards getting a job if people have been out of work for a while. They will get qualifications as well as the references.

“At the end of the day, they are doing something good for the community.”

The shop, which is on Regent Street, is also looking for additional donations and anyone who can help should call in.

l To volunteer contact Tony on Mansfield 657129 or call into the shop.
