Theo’s charity shop looking for volunteers

Published: 1 June 2021

Covid-19 has given many challenges to charity shops. When non-essential shops were allowed to re-open following the first national lockdown, Theo’s charity shop in Kenfig Hill experienced a shortage of volunteers as some decided to leave them because of age, health conditions or because they were shielding.

Margaret from Theo’s charity shop says: “Thanks to support from BAVO and the Volunteering Wales website, we were able to successfully recruit sufficient volunteers to re-opens. Volunteering is proving a lifeline for many reasons at this time and has become a more valued part of community life. We are grateful to all our Theo’s volunteers for their hard work and commitment.”
