Barnardo’s has also been supported by a group of volunteers who have contributed more than 3,380 hours to help with sorting the stock and serving the customers. The shop has grown from two to 10 volunteers over the past 12 months.

Branch manager Rayna Magee said: ‘We have an amazing team of volunteers who offer so much of their own time each week. Every hour is sincerely appreciated. We are really grateful to the local community for supporting us.’
