Volunteers willing to donate their time to the daily running of a Colne charity shop are being urged to step forward.

Due to a number of recent retirements, Pendleside Hospice’s store, in Dockray Street, is in need of some extra hands.

Help is especially needed on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings, as well as Saturday afternoons, but any offer will be welcomed with open arms.

The site is currently managed and staffed by a team of 40 volunteers. It regularly achieves yearly takings of over £100,000 to help provide specialist care to local people with life-limiting illnesses.

For Cath Dent, who has worked at the charity shop since it opened over 20 years ago, being a volunteer is an ideal way that she can use some of her retirement time.

She said: “I enjoy the friendship of my fellow volunteers and many local people, who have become regular customers over many years.”
