Lancaster and District Samaritans, based in Sun Street, are looking for new volunteers to help out in their Damside Street shop.
Branch director Hilary Prior said: “Lancaster Samaritans is run entirely by volunteers, with no hidden costs, so every penny we raise in the shop goes towards providing our confidential listening service for local people.
“We had more than 30,000 callers last year and the need is increasing.”
Volunteers don’t need to have previous retail experience, as long as they’re comfortable with handling money, honest, approachable and enthusiastic.
Information packs can be picked up directly from the Samaritans shop, via phone on 01524 382058 or by emailing email@example.com.
Good quality shop stock is always needed too, and can be collected.
