THE new Vinnies store in Halls Head and is looking for volunteers.

The shops opening received massive support from the community with long queues of people having a look around.

Manager Amanda Albert said patrons were excited by the store’s location.

“Most of the op shops are clustered on the other side of the bridge, so a lot of customers have said it is fantastic we are in this location,” she said.

The store is still looking for volunteers who are keen to make a difference in their community.

“We still have room for more volunteers so I’m hoping some young people will apply because aside from being a fun place to work, it is a great way to learn skills they can put on their resume,” she said.

Volunteer Kerrie Davis has enjoyed her experience so far.

“This role makes me feel engaged, productive and a part of giving something back,” she said.

“To people who are thinking of volunteering, I would say just give it a go. It’s worth it.”
