Kate works as a lawyer by day, and helps us out as a Volunteer Shop Assistant in her free time. Think you could do what Kate does? We’re always looking for new volunteers!

What does being a volunteer at Oxfam mean to you?

Working with books is something I’ve wanted to do since I was an enthusiastic member of the Puffin Club… And the slightly smug factor of doing good.

What is the most enjoyable part of working at Oxfam Books Petergate?

Finding new authors, new titles (i.e. ones I haven’t read) and helping customers explore the shop.

How would you describe your Volunteer role at Oxfam in one sentence?

Great time out from my employed work (I’m a lawyer – legal aid – and it’s knackering).
