Volunteers Wendy, Peta, Heather and Tony with lots of bargains and friendly smiles
Run by the Community Church of Tin Can Bay to raise funds to assist local people in need of a helping hand, they also donate funds to local community groups such as the CWA, RSL, SES, Coastguard, Medical Transport, Lions Club, and Meals on Wheels, to name a few.
They also sponsor a child overseas and support the ‘Think Like a Pony Program’ which teaches local kids how to look after and ride horses and learn about respect, leadership and love.
The group hold a Christmas luncheon every year for the community to enjoy and celebrate together. They also have a Centrelink officer there every day to offer assistance and advice. It is so much more than just an Op Shop.
As volunteer Anne Warren explained, “The Tin Can Bay and Cooloola Cove community are fantastic with the support we get, through donations of goods to volunteering in the shop, and everything in between. The volunteers love it and we love having them help out. It’s wonderful.”
Go on in and have a chat with the lovely volunteers and you may just find yourself a bargain!
