Helen Lakey, who has been volunteering at our Felixstowe Charity Shop for over 10 years, has also found the time to write two children’s books in aid of our branch called “Plop! The Boy who saved the World” and “The Trainees go West”.
Helen lives in Felixstowe and is passionate about the environment and animals. Having grown up on a farm in Suffolk and helped run a number of shops, she has a lot of experience to draw upon when thinking up her stories. Helen is keen for her two new books to not only raise money for the branch but to also raise awareness for the branch and its vital work too.
Helen enjoys helping at our shop with the managers Cathie and Jo and the rest of the wonderful volunteer team. She is busy working on the sequel to Plop!
