Volunteers Rescue their Local Store from Closure

The 370-year-old village store in Itteringham, Norfolk has been rescued from closure by more than 50 volunteers who have joined a rota to stack shelves, serve customers and keep it going.

This heartwarming enterprise is one of 301 community shops in Britain, with a further 204 in the pipeline. The trend is being driven by The Plunkett Foundation, a charity that helps improve rural livelihoods through co-operatives and social enterprise.
