Hoxton youth charity seeks volunteers to man its 'monster supplies' shop

CREATIVE writing charity Ministry of Stories is searching for volunteers to help run its Hackney novelty store during the busy Christmas period.

Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, the shop that part-funds the charity, needs enthusiastic and friendly people to help sell its range of macabre gifts including cans of 'creeping dread'; bottled tears; books like The Awfully Bad Guide To Monster Housekeeping; 'Boo!' T-shirts; earwax fudge; and Tatty Devine necklaces 'perfect for trolls, ogres, and other beautiful beasts'.  

The Hoxton charity is also looking for administration, fund-raising, marketing, and maintenance volunteers to support its back office.

Co-founded by About A Boy author Nick Hornby, the charity helps develop creative writing skills for children, aged eight to 18, through workshops and gives young up-and-coming writers the chance to get their work published. It also set up 'The Children's Republic Of Shoreditch' - an independent state run by its young members - earlier this year.
