Volunteers Week – Karen Trickett

Continuing our celebration of our amazing volunteers, we have Karen Trickett.

Karen chose to volunteer at The Community Give Box as it is local to where she lives, the proceeds go to local residents. Karen also volunteered here as there was no need for any references or DBS checks with a quick starting date and flexible hours.

She enjoys volunteering at The Give Box as she feels useful in helping the community of Wakefield. Karen has also enjoyed learning new skills such as working on and using the till, plus the retail experience she has gained by volunteering at our charity shop.

Karen would recommend volunteering at The Give Box as ‘it is a fantastic place to pick up new skills and gain experience in a retail environment’.

Karen saw the chance to volunteer at the charity shop on Facebook, a post asking for volunteers caught her eye and she answered the call.
