About National Council For The Blind - NCBI Retail Shop Sligo
NCBI, the national sight loss agency, is a not for profit charitable organisation which provides support and services nationwide to people experiencing sight loss.
We also provide a range of services to public and private organisations to make sure that their services are accessible to people who are blind and vision impaired.
Volunteers play a vital role in raising funds through NCBI’s retail shops nationwide.
New volunteers are trained in all aspects of working in the charity shop including sorting, steaming, pricing and tagging clothes as well as working on the till and serving customers.
Some volunteers prefer to stay involved in sorting and steaming in the back room, while others spend most of their time in the area they are skilled in e.g. book sorting, bric-a-brac or window dressing.
The manager is open to hearing from anyone who can commit a minimum of 2 hours per week, Mon-Sat.
