Volunteer Story - David

I first joined Nourish Charity Shop when I seen it in the Mercat and was interested to find out what it was. I have been volunteering for quite some time now and I really enjoy it. I enjoy tagging items and pricing them, steaming the clothes that need done, hanging up stock and doing walkarounds.

But what I enjoy the most is greeting customers when they're coming into the shop. I have gained much more confidence, friendships and have a lot of good laughs whilst volunteering in Nourish.

Volunteer Story - Ami

I started volunteering at Nourish because I've always wanted to do volunteering however being in a wheelchair made it a challenge until I came to Nourish who happily welcomed me to the team and have made me feel so welcome and appreciated since the moment I joined.

While I'm volunteering, I enjoy seeing so many different people come in knowing I can make a difference to their lives as well as my own. Since I started volunteering, I have gained the ability to use the till, but it has helped me with my confidence with talking to new people and most importantly I've gained another family. I love volunteering with Nourish.

  • Volunteer Story - Rab

    Being a Nourish member for 5 years I started volunteering in lockdown 2020 collecting food donations then started volunteering in the centre becoming lead volunteer.

    Once the charity shop and hub opened I then became involved in both. I enjoy giving back by going out collecting in the van, talking to other people as everyone that knows me I like a chat! What I get from volunteering is personal achievement especially if I have helped someone.

  • Volunteer Story - Gordon

    I like that I don't have to hide my disability when I'm volunteering with nourish and everyone is very understanding. I feel welcome and free to be myself. It feels like family.
