The GR8 Team Volunteering At Acorn Enterprises.

Members of the GR8 Recruitment team spent the day volunteering at Acorn Enterprises. Di and her mum (Betty) focused on making the shop sparkle by cleaning the shelves and products whilst the rest of the team tackled the incoming donations. They sorted through the items, assigned prices, and put them out for sale.
