Charity shop hunts for Lego specialist "with a passion for bricks"

Thursday 01 February 2024

A charity shop which raises funds for cancer research is on the lookout for a "specialist with a passion for bricks" to help sort and build Lego sets after an influx of donations.

The Cancer Research shop on Halkett Place has announced that they are seeking volunteers to sort and assemble Lego sets from the donated parts to ensure they are in good condition for resale.

The proceeds from selling the Lego sets will go towards the charity's goal of preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer.

A spokesperson for the charity retailer said: “The store manager, Louise, and her family are keen Lego builders. 

“Louise saw the opportunity for the store to bring in a specialist(s) with a passion for bricks!"

They explained that having a specialist volunteer who can reassemble kits that are missing pieces "will maximise their value and increase their appeal to collectors”.

The spokesperson added: “The time you donate as a volunteer really does help fund research that will save lives.

"Volunteering has plenty of benefits, such as growing your confidence, making new friends and being part of a team and your community. 

“Plus, volunteering is easy and flexible and hours can be designed to fit around your personal and work commitments."

The Cancer Research store is also looking for shop floor volunteers to serve customers, sort and steam clothes; a book specialist to support the team in curating, researching pricing, and sorting through books and media donations; and for volunteers to launder garments, which the shop can deliver and collect. 


Interested individuals can apply to volunteer by visiting the store, online HERE, or contacting the Community Resourcing Co-ordinator via email on
