Stevenson Volunteers for 'Make a Difference' Day

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson will be helping out at Barnardo’s shop at 12 Erroll Street, Peterhead on Make a Difference Day, Friday 26 October (tomorrow) in a bid to encourage more people to consider volunteering with the children’s charity. Mr Stevenson will meet Shop Manager Mandy Ross and her team.

The MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast will give up an hour of his time at the shop where he will be helping with activities like serving customers and preparing stock for sale. Stewart is supporting Barnardo’s Scotland’s latest appeal for more volunteers for its shops over the busy Christmas period.

Stewart Stevenson and Barnardo’s Scotland are encouraging people to give volunteering a try in one of its shops on Make a Difference Day. Tasks could include preparing the stock for sale, displaying it on the shop floor and helping customers, while creative types might enjoy window dressing.

Commenting ahead of his visit, Stewart Stevenson said:

“I am delighted to have the privilege of volunteering at Barnardo’s shop in Peterhead and am very much looking forward to helping out with various tasks. Volunteering is a wonderful way of giving something back to the community and is also an opportunity for people to learn new skills. I would very much like to encourage people in Buchan to consider volunteering at their local Barnardo’s shop, particularly over the busy Christmas period when they could really do with extra help, even if its just a few hours a week. All you have to do is pop into your local shop and find out more."
