Worthing Samaritans appeals for shop volunteersWorthing Samaritans urgently needs volunteers to help in its charity shop in Durrington. Income from the shop covers the running costs of Worthing Samaritans, but volunteer shop workers are hard to find, and as a result the shop cannot open as much as it would like.
Shop Manager Jo says “Since COVID it’s become difficult to recruit and retain volunteers, which is frustrating because we would like to open more hours, but just don’t have the staff. We’re conscious of how much the work of Worthing Samaritans depends on the shop, and we would really love to have more help. Our volunteers find it really fulfilling working in the shop. You meet new people every day, use your skills, and know that every penny from items you sell goes towards the life-saving work of Worthing Samaritans.”

The motion called on the Council to not only take action over the global warming gas emissions relating to their own estate and operations but also to lead others to respond to climate change by setting the best possible example and by cooperating with and enabling others to do the same.
