It was all go last week at our Sheffield shop when we helped to support Sheffield Universities volunteering event – a nonstop 24 hour volunteering marathon!!
Students taking part had agreed to promote and encourage volunteering over a continuous 24 hour period with a number of different charities to mark National Student Volunteering Week in February.
Denisa, our shop manager, put 3 volunteers Dara, Sang and Sanghamitra through their paces and they enthusiastically got involved in a number of activities over the few hours they were at the shop including cleaning, steaming and sorting!
The shop has enjoyed a great relationship with Sheffield University since we opened and has proved very popular with students wanting a pre-loved bargain, some recycled jewellery or just something a bit different for a night out.
Hopefully all three will have enjoyed their day so much they'll be back on a regular basis.
