News from around the Archdiocee of Liverpool
A Liverpool volunteer is appealing for people to join her in sustaining a ‘one of a kind’ charity shop. The shop is the only one in the country that raises money for Cafod and has been an enormous success over the past 20 years, raising over £715,000. However, due to a lack of volunteers, the shop now risks having to reduce its opening hours.
The shop, on St John’s Road, Waterloo, was set up by Cafod campaigners, Tony Redmond and Harry Wallace, over twenty years ago and has been led by volunteers ever since. Manager, Wendy Francis-Rowe, said: ‘We’re really keen for volunteers of all backgrounds to come forward, as throughout the shop there are a wide number of roles available.
‘It would be a real shame to lose the shop with all of its history, it is truly one of a kind and we’d love for it to continue raising money and bringing the community together for a long time.’
To find out more or to register your interest in volunteering at the shop, please contact Wendy on 0151 286 4003 or email liverpool@Cafod.org.uk
