Could you be a volunteer upcycling champion? A volunteer upcycling retail assistant is needed to help at the Paul Sartori Hopsice at Home store, Letterston.

Paul Sartori says: “With a firm focus on renewing the life of tired old furniture, our store on Upper Terrace, Letterston, sells items of furniture that have been upcycled by our partners Norman Industries to prevent their journey to landfill. If you have an interest in reclaimed items which have been given a new lease of life while helping the environment and feel as strongly as we do about sustainability then we would love to hear from you.

“We hope to recruit volunteers who would engage with customers, telling the story of the items for sale and how they have been restored.

“If you are interested in sustainability and have a love for restored and upcycled furniture this could be the ideal volunteer role for you.

“Duties include using the till, serving customers, displaying merchandise, pricing items and helping to keep the store clean and organised. Our till systems use touch-screen technology which is very simple to use and full training is given.”

It lists the following advantages of volunteering:

 *Learn new skills for your CV

*Make a difference

*Meet new people

*Be part of a team

*Gain confidence

*Volunteer discount card

* Free complementary therapies

* Training and experience of a retail environment
