Charity need staff for their new shop in  Morningside

Save the Children are opening their fourth shop in Edinburgh this Saturday  in Morningside Road.

The charity is appealing to local people to help run the new shop and to donate items that can be sold to raise money for Save the Children’s work around the world.

Alison Byers, Save the Children Retail Regional Manager, said:-

“We’re really excited to be opening a new shop in Morningside and we had a great response to our appeal for volunteers last month.

“All of our shops are run entirely by volunteers so we still need a few more people to add to our team.

“Working in our shops is really fun as the jobs vary from pricing stock to creating eye-catching window displays to finding treasures amongst the donations and even promoting our wider campaigns to customers. We’d also love to receive any stock donations people can make to the shop. This can be clothes, books, toys or household items.”

Anyone interested in volunteering at the new Save the Children shop can get more information by dropping in at 390 Morningside Road or contacting Alison Byers on 07826 859 127 or
