Yesterday was International Volunteer Day 2018!
So it seemed like a good opportunity to say a public thank you to all our amazing volunteers!
Here is some of us at our Christmas meal last week:
The shop wouldn't keep going without volunteers like these.

We will be closed on Monday because it is a Bank Holiday.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Just a reminder that we are closed all day tomorrow because of Marian's Whitaker's funeral.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
The shop was her vision, to see producers in the third world be given a chance to change their lives for the better, as we sold Fairtrade goods. As we travelled step by step with God, it became possible to introduce a Christian book shop and a coffee bar, giving opportunity to share God's good news with those in the town and further afield.
One of Marian's favourite things was being able to sell Bibles to people, because she loved God's Word so much. We know that she is now receiving her reward with the Lord in heaven having departed from the earth almost a week ago.
Her funeral service will be at 12 noon on Thursday 19th July at Gloddeath Church on Chapel Street in Llandudno.
This will be followed by a private burial service and then refreshments in Emmanuel Church.
The shop will not be opening that day to allow all the staff and volunteers to attend the funeral.
Marian had an amazing impact on countless lives
