- You can learn new skills, gain valuable experience, strengthen your CV and have the opportunity to complete qualifications in Retail
‘I started volunteering because I met some of the team and instantly felt like part of the Wood Green family. Whilst volunteering for Wood Green, I have achieved an NVQ in Retail.”
