Hello my name is Peter and I’m the Deputy Manager at Attleborough Shop. I joined the charity in February 2014 and work two days a week. I enjoy my role knowing that the money raised is going to animals that need care and medical attention.

Sue, my Manager often comes up with great ideas, so while I have been working with her I have been carol singing, a model four times in a fashion show and dressed up as chicken doing a street collection!! My favourite animals are dogs especially cocker spaniels and Labradors. I love it when our four legged friends come into the shop to say “hello”. I would like to think they are coming in to see me although they really come in for a treat.

Within the job role you never know what will be donated which can make it quite exciting at times. I also enjoy working with our fabulous volunteers who we couldn’t run the shop with without their help and support.

Love my job! I must have been in this role as a Shop Manager for twenty years. In my role, every day is a challenge to try and make as much money as we can by displaying merchandise in the best way possible, changing displays on a regular basis but most importantly customer care, knowing their needs and listening. My passion in life is animals, I love them all, one Labrador in particular! The team of helpers I have here, my deputy Pete and all the volunteers, work very hard to make the shop inviting to the customers with good customer care. We do extra events such as fashion shows which I enjoy putting together but the staff all help, it’s a team effort. As for the future who knows.
