Charity’s appeal to Coleraine students

CHILDREN’S charity Barnardo’s is appealing to students from ages 14-20 years in the Coleraine area to consider volunteering their time in its

shop at Stone Row.

The plea comes as part of Student Volunteering Week, which aims to highlight the valuable work student volunteers do, raise awareness about

the benefits of volunteering and appeal for more students to get involved.

Almost a third of Barnardo’s retail volunteers are aged 14-20 years old and are invaluable to the charity for their fresh, innovative approach.

Sarah McCotter, the manager of the Barnardo’s Coleraine shop said, “We love having young volunteers. They give us a new outlook on how to do

things and give us fresh ideas. If you’re a teenager interested in fashion why not come and help us put together some great outfits?

“We’re keen to hear from young people interested in design who can help us with window and in-store displays. School students interested in books, music and films are always more than welcome, to tell us what’s hot and what’s not.”
