Volunteering in a Red Cross shop is something anyone can do, whether they have several afternoons a week to spare or just a few hours.

The reward is the chance to learn new skills and socialis, knowing youโ€™re contributing to raising money for Red Cross services helping others in your local community.

Although the charity is well-known for its work overseas, the Red Cross supports thousands of people each year in the UK by helping people regain their independence after a health crisis, being the biggest provider of support to refugees and asylum seekers adjusting to life in a new country, and teaching life-saving first aid.

Grant Dearson (53) volunteers at the shop sorting through the 110 bags supporters give the Red Cross.

Grant said: โ€˜I look forward every day to coming into the shop. Volunteering with the Red Cross gives me a real sense of purpose and motivates me.โ€
