Our shops fund the care of 1 in 4 patients and having them closed for 3 months has had a huge financial impact. We are delighted to have reopened most of our shops now but we are operating reduced opening hours with significantly less resource.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, not all our volunteers are able to return to our shops, and without volunteers our shops aren’t able to function. And so we are urgently looking for people to donate their time to help Myton!
If you’re currently on furlough, not at college or university at the moment, or have found yourself with some extra time...
we would love to hear from you! We are able to take on temporary and part time volunteers, with flexible hours to suit your availability. Rest assured the safety of our staff, volunteers and the public is our priority and we have put a number of measures in place in our shops to support this.
Volunteers are a key part of a retail team and two shop managers have shared what people can expect from being a Myton volunteer…
Megan, shop manager at Church Street in Rugby:
As a team we work together to develop volunteers’ interpersonal skills. My aim is to always remind the volunteers of their strengths and help them maximise their abilities, whilst promoting time management skills and applying themselves the best they can.
Deanna, shop manager at Mill Street in Nuneaton:
All of our volunteers are like a family; we know each other so well. It’s really nice for me as the manager to know that they’re choosing to donate their time to be here.
