Barby Keel Charity Shop


Yearly letter

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe it’s been a year already. My journey to this point started over 10 years ago when we got our cat Ben from Barby Keel, he was underweight, anxious and had almost no hair on his tail. Thanks to Barby Keel rescuing him from a very sad situation and finding him a new home, he is now healthy, happy, and has a bushy tail.

So, when I began my search for places to volunteer, there was only one place to start. I felt very welcomed by all, with a real togetherness of all the volunteers which is something I have not experienced in a workplace before. After 5 months of volunteering I was offered the position of Assistant Shop Manager, having loved my time volunteering I was delighted to accept.

Working in the shop full-time for a whole year I have got to know our regulars (human and dog) and been able to experience first hand the full scope of what it takes to run and organise the shop, making it one of my highlights to watch on the BBC that all our work generates an amazing 65% to go directly back to the animals.

Working here has been so good for me and I would like to thank everyone at Barby Keel for that. A special thank-you to Sue for giving me the opportunity in a management position, it’s a learning experience every day.
