VOLUNTEERS are being sought for a charity’s recycling project in Daventry.

Oxfam runs a unique warehouse in Daventry, sorting unsellable items to try and make extra money for the charity.

Based on the Marches industrial estate, the warehouse takes in items from charity shops, companies and other sources, sorts through and grades them.

Items are then sold over internet sites, or sorted and sent off for recycling.

Jay Flemming, logistics project manager said: “We’re looking for volunteers to come in and help, if they can offer anything from a couple of hours a week upwards.

“We need people to sort and grade items, but also to test electrical goods.”

Site manager Charlie Littlemore added: “It’s a good atmosphere here.

“Volunteers who come to us directly can receive travel expenses and a lunch allowance, depending on their hours of work.

“It also looks good on a CV and we can give references.”

Anyone interested can contact the warehouse on 07784933834 or at
