“An update from the YMCA:

YMCA retail work to raise money to support the Local Associations who provide accommodation, training and support in many areas to vulnerable young people. Whitley Bay Shop opened 7th February 2020 and have been overwhelmed at the customer support and comments about the shop. We have had overwhelming generosity with donations but always seem to struggle with Bric a Brac and electrical items. 

We also would love to hear from anyone who is interested in volunteering, we really need extra help to keep the shop fully stocked and have a variety of roles both back of house and shop floor. Anyone looking to meet new people, learn new skills or just get out of the house for a few hours, call in and chat to Kerry our friendly Manager and ask about a trial shift. We have 100’s of volunteers across our 96 shops who love contributing to what we do.”
