LOCAL MP Rosie Cooper is calling on residents to spare some time to help out an Ormskirk charity shop.
Rosie rolled up her sleeves to help out at Barnardo’s shop in Wheatsheaf Walks and is encouraging West Lancashire people to do the same.
Rosie, MP for West Lancashire, said: “I was at Barnardo’s as part of CSV Make a Difference Day, the UK’s biggest day of ‘hands-on’ volunteering.
“Across the country, thousands of people took part, giving their time to make a positive impact on local communities, an I was doing my bit by helping out at Barnardo’s.
“I had a fabulous time with manager Diane Cliff and her team. The customers were warm and friendly and it was a real pleasure to help out.
“I would encourage as many people as possible to give an hour or two to helping out at the shop. It’s a really good cause and you will make lots of new friends while at the same time doing something positive for our community.
“If you are interested in doing what I did and give a few hours to help others, then call the shop on 01695 572962.”
