Could you be a Sally Army helper in Stevenage this Christmas?

That’s the question from the Salvation Army’s Queensway charity shop as it launches an appeal for extra volunteers over the festive season.

November and December are peak months in the charity’s chain of shops, and extra helpers are needed to help take the cash and sort out donations.

Area manager Elaine Williams-Porter said: “There’s no time like Christmas to help out at a Salvation Army shop. It’s one of the best times of year, but also one of the busiest.

“That’s why we’re appealing for a band of Sally Army helpers who can donate as much time as they can to our Stevenage shop during the festive period.

“Volunteers often don’t realise how valuable they are, a couple of hours a week make a huge difference to us.”

Over the last five years alone the Salvation Army retail and recycling arms shops have contributed more than £35 million to support the charity’s work. To get involved just drop into the shop.
