Sort and organise clothing donations at Marylebone charity shop
"Great experience for a charity which really needs the help due to lack of patrolled staff," Catherine Bird
Who will I help?
Barnado’s provides a variety of services to improve the lives of disadvantaged children, and this store is one of the most successful among its chain of shops.
Known as an outlet of high-quality designerware, celebrities including Shirley Bassey have been known to donate their preloved wardrobe to the store.
They have also hosted special Design for Life events in store.
How will I help?
Volunteering at Barnados Marylebone will get you on the other side of a busy shop counter and provide insight into the art of reusing and recycling upmarket items.
You may find yourself helping out with:
• Organising and pricing stock items accordingly
• Designing eye-catching window displays
• Greeting and serving customers
You will be volunteering alongside shop staff, undertaking a variety of tasks that help keep this shop a popular destination for regular customers and bargain hunters.
