Aid charity, the British Red Cross is giving an opportunity to come and visit The Big Red Cross Bus. This is the aid charity's mobile charity shop and you will be able to do some shopping there and pick up a bargain - while also being able to test out your volunteering skills!

The bus is this international relief charity's one-stop mobile charity and volunteering centre all rolled into one fantastic double-decker bus

From 31 May to 12 June this double decker bus will be visiting 12 locations around the UK as part of Volunteers Week 2010 charity celebrations.

When it comes to your town the aid charity invites you to donate any clothes, books or DVDs etc that will help create revenue that helps them fight poverty.

On the lower deck of the bus you can browse the shop and also offer yourself as a poverty charity volunteer.

On the top deck of the bus you will be able to find out about places where you can go to try your volunteering skills apart from on the Big Red Cross Bus.

Maryanne Burton, head of volunteering, said: “Lots of people think about volunteering but maybe don't get round to doing it, so this is a fun way to find out more and give it a go. Besides browsing and shopping, you can also try your hand at sorting, steam-cleaning clothes and pricing the stock.”

The British Red Cross help people in crisis - whoever they are and wherever they may be.

If you can't get to see the bus - then you can help support the British Red Cross by buying a charity gift from their online ethical gifts store.
