“Volunteers make a huge, huge difference to our shops. Each and everyone of them brings something different. They help with customers, the running of the shop and the feel to the shop. We all have such a laugh and they enjoy being with us, just as much as we love having them with us. They do such wonderful work and we can’t thank them enough.”
