Salvation Army’s Altrincham shop in appeal for more volunteers

By David Prior at

The Salvation Army charity shop on George Street is reaching out to local unemployed people in Altrincham in an effort to recruit new volunteers.

Staff at the volunteer-run shop can work towards an NVQ in customer service, learn valuable retail skills and develop their CVs.

Shop manager Cristina Constantinescu is keen to spread awareness of the skills and qualifications available through volunteering at the shop.

She said: “We want to provide a stepping stone for those who are looking for work; we know that the skills they can learn with us could help with their personal and career development.

“We really couldn’t function without our fantastic team of volunteers. Their hard work allows us to raise money for The Salvation Army, which works to support vulnerable people, and I think our volunteers really value the fact that they are making a difference.”
