Salvation Army needs donation collection drivers

Have your say

A CHARITY needs drivers.

Salvation Army shops in Blandford Street, Sunderland, and Yoden Way, Peterlee, want volunteers to collect donations from people in the area who are unable to take them to the shops themselves.

Donations could include small, portable furniture such as side tables, nests of tables, coffee tables, bedside cabinets and stools, as well as large amounts of bric-a-brac, homeware and clothing.

Drivers would be required to make pre-arranged house calls organised by the shop teams and transport the donations back to one of the designated shops.

The collections can be arranged around other commitments the volunteers may have and could include evenings and weekends if more convenient.

Area manager Wendy Glaister-Smith said: “We get lots of calls relating to house collections and volunteer drivers would really make a difference as we could take in much more stock.”
