What people have to say about us
We work hard to provide the very best service for each and every person that walks through our doors – but don’t just take our word for it.
“Volunteering at Free Shop is rewarding, gives me a sense of purpose and helps me to feel connected to my community. There is also a strong sense of team amongst the volunteers, it is a great charity to be part of. My main role is working in the shop and packing bags for the customers. My day job is being a primary teacher but Free Shop has become such a big part of my life. There are many ways that you can get involved and support the families who need it. You will be very glad that you did.”
“Working as a Volunteer at FreeShop feels like a privilege. It gives me the chance to give back to my community and be part of an initiative that helps hundreds of people each week. It is a joy to bring some hope and light into people's lives in hard times.”
“We’re curious, passionate, and committed to helping nonprofits learn and grow. Oh, and some of us are stage actors and worm farmers on the side.”
“I lost my wife a few years and ago, she was my everything, I was one of the lucky ones! Beryl took care of everything, without her I did not know how to budget or shop for myself. One day I stumbled across Free Shop and I never looked back; they sent me food each week - fresh fruit and veg, treats and essentials. I used to just buy junk food, but they taught me how to shop effectively, how to prepare food and also how to save money! I am now able to budget, shop and cook my food - Free Shop has changed my life. ”
