The charity has made the shortlist for three awards this year. Local volunteer Moira Jackman is in the running for the Volunteer of the Year Award whilst The Children’s Air Ambulance shop in Stow on the Wold is also shortlisted for the WOW!

Commenting on the announcement, Emma Peake, Director of Retail and Trading for The Air Ambulance Service, said: “We are hugely excited and honoured to be shortlisted for these prestigious titles and to be recognised by the Charity Retail Awards”.

“Our teams are very committed and dedicated to our charity, and are working tirelessly to achieve as much income for the charity as they can.

“Our shops are manned by over 350 wonderful volunteers so this is a real testimony to their work they do for us alongside our professional store management team.”

Robin Osterley, Charity Retail Association CEO, said: “The Charity Retail Awards is a showcase for our members to tell the story of the fantastic work they do across the country and this year is no different.

“There was a varied range of entries which exemplified the passion and innovation we see across the charity retail sector every day.”

The winners will receive their awards during the ceremony at the Colwick Hall Hotel in Nottingham on 25 June as part of the Charity Retail Association Conference and Exhibition.
