HELENSBURGH’S Oxfam shop is looking for more volunteers to add to its local team after the store reopened for the first time since lockdown.

The Colquhoun Square shop welcomed back its volunteers, and its first customers, on Wednesday, July 15, with strict protocols in place to guard against the spread of coronavirus including social distancing, sanitiser, masks and gloves for staff, screens at tills, and regular and frequent cleaning.

Donated items are being isolated for 48 hours before they are sorted, while customers are being urged to call ahead before dropping off items.

A maximum of five customers will be allowed in the shop at a time, and people are being asked not to leave donations outside the shop outwith opening hours.

"We hope that support continues as the vital funds raised by our shops are needed now more than ever.

“Oxfam relies on the goodwill and generosity of our volunteer team to help run our shops and we’re always looking for more help.”
