A CHARITY shop in Ludlow that supports the battle against cancer is looking for volunteers.

An appeal is being issued to people in Ludlow to give up a few hours of their time in support of a good cause.

The Cancer Research UK shop on Castle Street is on the lookout for more volunteers who are able to join the fight against cancer by helping out in store. There are a variety of roles available from serving customers to dressing windows.

“If you know the difference between Gucci and Gap, can spot a rare book, are a collectables buff or just want to give your time to support a great cause then Ludlow’s Cancer Research UK shop would like to hear from you,” said shop manager Jenie Fletcher.

Cancer Research UK receives no government funding for its research but with help from the people of Ludlow the charity aims to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

“Every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, every hour and every person, so we are very grateful to all the wonderful people who support our life-saving work by shopping with us, making a donation or generously offering their time as volunteers,” added Ms Fletcher.

“Many of our volunteers work just one morning or afternoon a week, or sometimes a mid-day shift to help over the busy lunchtime period. A few hours can make a huge difference. No matter how much time a person can give or what their experience, we are urging people to get in touch.”

The Ludlow Cancer Research UK shops sells quality clothes and accessories with profits going to the charity’s work to help beat cancer sooner. For more details, viisit the shop or telephone 01584 878293.
