Jake Oldrey

Jake, the Acting Manager of Treasure Seekers Gift Shop, spends all day training other people to reach their goals. For his job is to give the opportunity to young people, and vulnerable or disadvantaged adults to gain the skills they need for the world of work. Each day he trains people in customers service, CV writing, or learning about time keeping: so that they can one day get a paid position elsewhere.

But now Jake is having to do training himself, starting from 5am every morning, to reach his goal of running Stratford’s Big 10k in under 50 minutes!


Because Jake wants to transform this space, the shop's staffroom area, into a training centre for our volunteers. The training centre would have a space with a computer for CV writing, will have motivational posters to spur volunteers on towards their goal, and will make the area more accessible to our physically disabled volunteers.

But he needs your help! Sponsor Jake's run by donating below and help us provide even better training to our amazing Gift Shop volunteers!

The Run takes place on the 9th of September, so get your donations in and help us use this space for to help others reach their goals!
