Some of our stories from our local community…..

“Emma and the volunteers are all so friendly and helpful. I love going for a look around the shop- I always end up coming home with a bargain!”

Debbie from St Ives

“Thank you for giving me a chance at volunteering in the shop. I have had a really difficult time and this has really helped me stay focussed.”

Marc from Huntingdon

“I have worked at the shop for 7 years and love interacting with the customers and volunteers.  I have a long history of retail experience and have enjoyed passing my knowledge onto my friends and colleagues at the shop”

Margaret from Huntingdon

“I medically retired 6 years ago and came into the shop for a jigsaw puzzle to keep me busy as I didn’t want to be stuck indoors!  Emma approached me and I asked her if she needed any volunteer help.  I have worked here ever since.  I consider myself to be part of this team which is one big happy family”

Joe from Huntingdon

“I retired two years ago from St Ivo school after 34 years of working there.  I now volunteer full time at Huntingdon Together Community Charity Shop.  I get involved in all aspects of running the shop which keeps me happy and healthy”

Josephine from St Ives

“Just after the 1st lockdown I was working at another charity shop and using the HVC car scheme to get there.  Huntingdon Together was understaffed at the time and a car scheme driver asked if id like to help in the shop.  I’ve been here ever since. I like working here and have made many more friends, it’s my second family”
