“As Volunteer / Telephone Befriending Lead I would like to say a huge Thank You to our amazing Charity Shop volunteers lead by Shirley and supported by staff member Christine Appleton. They have worked tirelessly to support our organisation and the local Thanet community. The shop will be greatly missed as it has been an integral part of Margate High Street for many years. It has been a wonderful place to go to grab a bargain but also a friendly space to have a chat and feel welcome. Shirley has helped countless people who have been struggling and provided clothes and bedding to the homeless, she also raised money for a defibrillator that was situated outside the shop for use by the community, this has now been moved to our Age UK Thanet Community Hub in Zion Place. We have sadly lost volunteers along the journey who are missed every day Gwenda, Angie, Linda and Darren.

Thank you once again on behalf of Age UK Thanet and best wishes to you all”
