IT’S not every day you call into your favourite charity shop - and find yourself being served by the Deputy Prime Minister.

But that’s exactly what happened to the Duckenfield family – mum Kate and sisters Hannah and Alice – when they went to pick up some bargains at the Crookes branch of the St Luke’s Hospice charity shops.

Nick Clegg was taking a break from affairs of state as he volunteered his time to help out at the store.

The Sheffield Hallam MP was taking part in the Jubilee Hour campaign, encouraging people to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by committing to 60 minutes of volunteering or a similar act of goodwill.

He said: “I have always been a big supporter of St Luke’s Hospice, so I was delighted to donate some of my time to help out this much loved Sheffield institution.”
