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!”
“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.”
“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”
“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”
“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”
“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”
