Student shop volunteer Ruby discusses her role volunteering at an ExtraCare charity shop.

Ruby - Student Volunteer

Charity Shop

I would recommend volunteering as it helps with confidence and helps bring you out of your shell especially if you are quiet and shy.

 

I’ve been volunteering at an ExtraCare charity shop for six months.

I’m 17 yrs old and I decided to volunteer to see if it would help me come out of my shell more and help build my confidence overall and also to meet people. I like volunteering very much.

I generally help out on the till with customers and have now gained confidence to process sales with the help of staff and volunteers, I also help out with online checking for Ziffit and check DVD’s, CD’s for scratches etc. I check on the shop displays and keep things tidy.

I would recommend volunteering as it helps with confidence and helps bring you out of your shell especially if you are quiet and shy.

I enjoy everything, I get on well with all staff and volunteers and enjoy myself whatever I’m doing, there’s always giggling in the mix too.

“I volunteer mainly on reception but during lockdown I set up a recycling collection team and a team to deliver orders from supermarkets to people like myself, who were in isolation. This was carried out on my computer, in my apartment, adhering to government and ExtraCare guidelines."
