Volunteering in our Gift Shop

Harriet Kissick-Jones is a resident at Grange and has been volunteering in our Gift Shop since March of this year. Our Gift Shop is home to a range of distinctive gifts as well ‘Can Do Creative’ which features arts, crafts, kitchen, homewares & decorative items made in workshops in Camphill Village Trust Communities.

Harriet says that “I enjoy working in the gift shop carrying out daily tasks, my favourite part about working in the Gift shop is assisting customers and giving out the free trails. I especially like working as part of a team”

Harriet has been helping out with: putting out new items, steaming garments for the fair trade home & fashion shop, tidying & cleaning the Gift Shop. Harriet has also learned many new skills such as; customer interaction, using the till, merchandising and pricing stock as well as working alongside the Taurus team.

“Working with Harriet is real pleasure and she brings a great positive attitude to the Gift Shop. She has learned many new skills during her time here and hopefully she will use these transferable skills in her day to day life.” Debbie Lawton Gift Shop & Enterprise Manager
