Southport Salvation Army has issued an urgent appeal for volunteers.

The long-established charity, which operates a large charity shop and warehouse on Shakespeare Street, wants to continue supporting local people who need help to “build better lives for themselves”. 

The organisation is keen to recruit volunteers for a number of roles and would love to hear from anyone interested. 

Amanda Hughes from Southport Salvation Army said:

 “We are in desperately in need of volunteers to help the people of Southport and surrounding areas.

“The Salvation Army is a large charity shop based in Southport with a large connecting warehouse and we are looking for volunteers in all areas including helping on the van. 

“Our aim is to help the people in Southport and local surrounding areas help build better lives for themselves and we do this by selling unwanted items in our shop and helping on a personal level. 

“The expected hours are flexible, between four and 35 hours per week.

“Due to how busy the shop is, we are looking for volunteers who are able to use their own initiative and confidently work on their own as we do not always have the staff to stay with volunteers.

“We ensure all our staff are trained and although we are sad to see them leave us, we help volunteers to build their resume enabling them to find paid positions. 

“Benefits include: an Employee discount; Flexitime; Free parking; On-site parking.

“The schedule is: day shifts Monday to Friday, with weekend availability

“You can call into the shop at any time for an informal chat, apply on Indeed or call our shop on 01704547805.”
