Help the homeless by volunteering

Have your say

A homeless charity is appealing for new volunteers to help run its second-hand store.

Emmaus Sheffield, a project which offers people somewhere to live and support to reintegrate into the community, needs people to give up their spare time to help out in its Cadman Street shop.

The shop stocks everything from unwanted books and ornaments to furniture, white goods and bicycles.

As it continues to grow in popularity, there is a need for more volunteers to help out.

Charley Holman, retail manager for Emmaus, said: “Some degree of retail experience would be useful but we can offer training.

“Even if you have only a few hours to spare we would love to hear from you because in that time you could make a major difference to the life of Emmaus.”
