It’s Second Hand September so let’s get ready to rummage!
We’re looking for an army of volunteers at our giant new Reuse & Recycle Store and warehouse in Newton Abbott.
And we’re holding two special volunteer recruitment events this month to show people why joining the Mare and Foal Sanctuary can make such a difference to their lives.
Whether you can spare an hour or a day, it’s a great way to make new friends while gaining retail experience.
Plus, it provides a behind the scenes look at what sells, how we sort thousands of items and how we rotate stock to keep our six shops provided with the very best bargains.
Our new store and warehouse has only been open for two months but we’ve almost filled the 1,700sq ft space to the ceiling with tons of great pre-loved goods donated to us from all over the South West.
The haul includes everything from antique and retro furniture to games, books and bric-a-brac, vintage clothing to accessories, jewellery and handbags – even saddles and bridles.
But we need help to sort through the boxes of fascinating items, which we sell in our charity shops to raise money to rescue horses and ponies in need.
We’re looking for people who can make a regular weekly commitment, are self-motivated and can use their own initiative.
Come and join us between 10am and 2pm on Wednesday, September 25th and Saturday, September 28th at our new Reuse & Recycle Store, Unit 2, Brunel Court, Brunel Road, Newton Abbot, TQ12 4PB to find out more from current Sanctuary volunteers.
There’ll be tea, coffee and cake and the chance to find out for yourself about volunteering for the Mare and Foal Sanctuary.
Alternatively, telephone our Volunteer Coordinator Kerri Luke on 07743 044125 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
