MIKE Amesbury will pay a visit to a Northwich charity shop tomorrow, Friday, and meet the team of volunteers who run it.

The Weaver Vale MP will make the appearance at his local Scope shop on the invitation of store manager Sarah Steadman.

And everyone involved with the High Street store are looking forward to showing their local MP what it is like to be a volunteer.

“We are all very excited about Mike Amesbury MP visiting our shop and look forward to seeing him,” said Sarah.

“Our volunteers are extremely important and we wouldn’t be able to run the shop effectively without their support.

“To have such a high-profile member of the community support Scope’s mission to achieve everyday equality for disabled people is incredible.

“A big thank you to all our loyal customers for supporting Scope in Northwich.”

Scope is currently looking to expand its network of volunteers, who are the lifeline of the charity across the country.

Duties range from sorting bags of donated stock, making sure the shop floor is running smoothly and helping customers to find a bargain.

Scope charity shops also provide the chance to gain National Vocational qualifications and volunteers can learn and develop new skills along the way.

Volunteering always looks good on a CV and is looked upon with respect by potential employers, as well as being a great way to make new friends and build confidence.
