Op-Shop in need of feline friends

THE Ten Lives Cat Centre says it is desperate for volunteers at its New Norfolk Op-Shop in High St. Ten Lives manager Noel Hunt said the shop has 14 volunteers on its books and could really do with another 14.

“The New Norfolk Op-Shop is very popular with the community,” he said. “We don’t expect our volunteers to work all day – they can do a morning or afternoon shift.” Due to the present shortage the shop is sometimes understaffed.

Volunteer Dianne Peake said working in the shop was very rewarding. “I love cats and Ten Lives is a very worthwhile charity,” Ms Peake said. “The Op-Shop is a good way for the community to function and support one another,” she said.

Ms Peake said volunteers are not expected to work 9-5, Monday to Friday. “You can do a couple of hours a day or couple of times a week. And you get first dibs at the stuff that comes into the shop,” she said with a laugh.

Prospective volunteers can call 6278 2111 or scan the barcode on the posters in the Ten Lives Op-Shop window at 37 High St, New Norfolk. The shop is open from 10am-5pm, seven days per week.
