Letter: Help support vulnerable children

Date published: 08 March 2018

Dear Editor,  

We would like to ask your readers to consider becoming part of a team that helps support vulnerable children in your area. 

As the UK’s leading children’s charity, Barnardo’s is looking for people to volunteer in our shops and help us raise money to support our local projects that work with disadvantaged children, young people and their families.   

By giving us a little of your spare time, you will gain invaluable experience that could provide a stepping stone to a new career or an opportunity to add to your personal statement for college or university. We also offer a chance to get out of the house, make new friends and have fun by joining the team at your local Barnardo’s store. 

Volunteering is also a great way to build confidence and an opportunity to try new things.  

Our volunteers – who are all ages and come from all walks of life - are given full training and ongoing support. 

To find out more about volunteering with Barnardo’s, please call into your local Barnardo’s store or visit the website at

Thank you, we look forward to meeting you. 


Marie Williams
Barnardo’s Regional Manager for Retail Operations
