Ann Allen wanted to give her time to volunteer for St Catherine’s following her family’s personal experiences of the hospice.
She said: “I first started working at Ashton about seven years ago – it was after my nephew had died. He’d had cancer and the way St Catherine’s helped him was wonderful. The support he and had his family received was such a help – I wanted to do something to help as a way to give back.
“I really enjoy coming into work – I do a bit of everything, sorting stock and pricing things up, putting it out in the shop and manning the till. I see people coming in who I’ve not seen for years which is lovely too!
“Ashton is a real community shop – we have lots of regular customers, some who come in virtually every day. The prices are always good too – you’re guaranteed a bargain, which obviously helps.
“I’ve made lots of new friends through volunteering and I like that I’m helping to support the important work of the hospice, so that other families can benefit from it.”
