I started volunteering at Second Chance Charity Shop Carlow on November 27th 2018.
After I leaving my volunteering work at Sue Ryder Charity Shop Carlow I known that I love working in a charity shop and I would love to continuing this. I also love animal so voluntering in animal welfare shop seems to be perfect. Second Chance charity shop is located in the Carlow Shopping Centre. And it 100% supports animal welfare. Second Chance shop is in asscoiation with Carlow SPCA (Society for the Prevencion of Cruelty to Animals).

My volunteering work in Second Chance was a fabulous time. Exceptionally friendly atmosphere and fantastic people. Both owners of the shop are lovely ladies with big heart for animals. There were rescued cats in the shop or even rescued guinea pig. As a volunters we could help feed a just new born kittens.
But the best things was meeting a Casey. Casey is a Samoyed, Irish Champion, European Champion, 2nd Crufts (English dog show of the World). He is very special dog. He was offten in a weekends in the shop. I was foling in love with him from a first meet. So one on my favourite job was walking with Casey around Carlow Shopping Centre and collecting money for Carlow SPCA. 16th of March at SECOND CHANCE in Carlow Shopping Centre we celebrated Casey`s 9th Birthday. It was music and Birthday cake for our fantastic dog Casey. Casey was blowing out the candle.
As a volunteer in Second Chance charity shop I was helping to keep shop tidy and presentable to the customers at all time. I was helping to prepare and price products for sale (bric-a-brac items, toys, books, shoes, bags etc). I was cleaning, ironing, hanging and tagging clothes. I was helping to create windows and dress manequins. I was serving customers and operate the till.
Voluntering in Second Chance was perfect for me, for improving my english and my confidence and meet new friends. I was very happy. WHATEVER you decide to do, MAKE sure it makes you HAPPY!
So seven months I was volunteering at Second Chance Charity Shop Carlow from 27th November 2018 until 3th July 2019. And 10th of July 2019 I got a job in Dunnes Store Carlow.
