The Age UK shop in Nantwich is appealing for a local electrician as part of a new scheme.

Staff at the store on Swine Market are taking in electrical items – but they cannot be sold on without PAT testing.

Now they hope a local sparky will come forward and donate a few hours each month to help them out.

Jayne Tunstall, manager at the Age UK store, said: “We get offered some fab electricals as donations, but unfortunately I can not accept them as I need to have them PAT tested.

“I need a qualified PAT tester to volunteer for me one morning a month to help me improve sales and therefore increase the charity’s funds to improve the lives of older people.

“The idea of a PAT testing volunteer is a new venture for us at the Nantwich shop.

“We accept all kinds of small electrical donations from radios and kettles, to lamps and bread-makers.

“But we currently send all our electrical items to another shop who have a PAT testing volunteer and then these items are sold by this shop.

“This procedure has been in place for many years, however I would like items donated by the people of Nantwich available for sale in our Nantwich shop.

“If we can get a PAT testing volunteer of our own, we can make this happen.

“This will not only increase our sales but reduce the cost of transporting items for the charity.”

If you can help contact Jayne on the shop phone number, 01270 623394.
