Three Counties Dog Rescue is appealing for volunteers to come and work at its new charity shop in West Street, Bourne.

The animal rescue centre, based in the town, has opened its first ever charity shop and needs your help to make it a continued success.

The grand opening, which took place two weeks ago, attracted hundreds of people to the shop, helping to raise vital funds for the animal charity.

Gyll Mauchline, who runs the charity, said: “It was so busy at the opening - you couldn’t move!

“It was such a fantastic day and I can’t thank everyone that came enough.”

The charity shop is currently only open from Thursday to Saturday due to the lack of volunteers. Gyll is hopeful that once more volunteers get involved, the shop will be able to open for up to six days a week.

“We need that support,” said Gyll. “We are still running the kennels alongside this new venture - so we need all the help we can get and it will be much appreciated.”

As well as a need for volunteers to help run the shop, the charity is also appealing for donations to sell.

“We are excepting pretty much anything from anyone,” said Gyll. “Please keep bringing your donations in - it makes all the difference.”

The shop sells all goods that have been donated. If you have any bric-a-brac, books, hand crafted items, clothes, bedding, curtains, electrical goods, kitchen items, DVD’s, CD’s and unwanted gifts, then you can either drop them off at the shop, Dawsmere Kennels or Burghley Vets in both Stamford and Market Deeping.

If you would like to find out more about volunteering please telephone Gyll on 07708589792.
