A charity shop in Harborough is looking for more volunteers to help it sort stock, dress windows and serve on the till.

The Rainbows Children’s Hospice shop in Coventry Road helps raise money for the county children’s hospice, the only one of its kind in the East Midlands.

Kayley Parker, shop manager at Rainbows in Market Harborough, said: “Volunteering is such a positive experience and we know that our existing volunteers really do enjoy it.

“We’re always looking for new volunteers, so if you have spare time, need a new challenge or simply wish to support Rainbows in a different way, please do get in touch.

“You can be a real part of something that brings support, love and laughter to children whose lives are sadly too short.

“Becoming a volunteer in our shop is so simple. You can work the hours that suit you; why not come in to our shop and have a chat with us?”

The Harborough charity shop opened its doors almost two years ago when former snooker player Willie Thorne cut the ribbon, helped by MP Edward Garnier.

All proceeds from the Rainbows shop go towards providing care and support to hundreds of children and young people in the East Midlands who have life-limiting and terminal illnesses.
