The Toll Community Hub in Burntisland is an extension of the Toll Community Centre.
The Hub helps promote the activities of the center and the charity shop sells bric-a-brac, clothes, books and food (at reduced cost and on specific days). They also offer some off the street support, to direct anybody who is finding things tough, to speak to the right people.
Volunteering with them is an exciting opportunity for anybody willing to get stuck in and who wants to help make a difference for the local community. Their centrally located charity shop is more than just a shop – it’s a social point for people who just sometimes need somebody to talk to.
You would be cash handling, sorting and rotating stock, setting up and closing, including tidying and keeping the space clean. There will be food handling on some days. This is a friendly environment where The Hub plays an important part within the community.
We are looking for volunteers to help us sort through all these donations, pick out the best items and prepare and sell them to our customers. Without the help of our dedicated volunteers we could not provide our customers with high quality items at affordable prices.

Your role will include some of, but is not restricted to, the following tasks:
Sort through donations, being aware of the possibility of a hidden gem and better quality brands
Prepare items for sale by checking, hanging, steaming, sizing and pricing them

Help out with basic housekeeping to keep the shop clean and tidy
