John Miskin: September 2019
Yes, Christmas is coming and the Charity Christmas Card Shop is due to open on Saturday 26th October. I rely entirely on volunteers to man the till, and this year I have been asked to open a few days earlier and stay open a week longer. This means I have 192 volunteer spaces to fill.
A request was sent out a week and a half ago to those volunteers who helped last year, and as I write this, I have had 85 spaces filled. This means I have another 107 yet to fill.
I have 5 members of the church who already help, not including my team of 5 managers and 2 assistants.
The shop is open Monday to Saturday with two 4-hour shifts, 10:00 — 13:00 and 13:00 17:00. If you think you would like to help and want to know more about it then please contact me — John Miskin on 01296 422919 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
