Volunteers walk out at Sobell House shop

A charity is looking into an incident where two volunteers walked out of a shop they were working at.

The helpers walked out on Monday afternoon after an incident at the Sobell House Hospice charity shop in High Street.

Hospice fundraiser Lindsay Manifold said: “An incident occurred between some of our volunteers at our Kidlington shop on Monday afternoon, which resulted in some volunteers walking out of the shop.

“Our volunteers are hugely important to us, and play a vital role in manning the shops and helping to provide valuable income to support the hospice.

“We are hopeful that the matter will be resolved.”

She added the shop had not been closed.

why don't they contact them directly rather than putting it in the paper. Doesn't seem a very nice way of trying to contact someone.

As one volunteer was verbally abused by another in a shop full of customers, four volunteers walked out and will not return to work with this inappropriately behaved woman.

The two volunteers should just go to another shop where they will be valued for giving their time for free.
