Thinking of volunteering in a Sue Ryder Charity Shop. It's a charity close to my heart. Does anyone else do this? Do you find it fulfilling?

You'll love it, will be so different from how you imagine... blinking hard work but without fail a lovely cause and normally lovely people! Enjoy smile

The shifts i do are busy but so worth it.
Meet lots of lovely people and doing some good.
Can't think of any negatives.

Thanks guys. I think I should probably give it a go as I won't know unless I try. I like to be busy and I like meeting people.

The only thing that bugged me about volunteering in a charity shop were the fuckers who used to shoplift.
But the other volunteers and the vast, vast majority of customers were lovely.

Hello, I'm another Oxfam volunteer. I have found them to be very accommodating with shifts - I said when I started that I could only do term times and that was fine. I do a bit of everything - serving on the till, sorting the donations, organising the shop. It's good fun, interesting and the other volunteers are nice people. Also we get regular training on certain types of products.
