Celebration after we win two awards at this year’s Charity Retail Awards

The Air Ambulance Service is celebrating after proudly picking up two awards at this year’s Charity Retail Awards.

Charity stalwart Moira Jackman won the Volunteer of the Year Award and staff from the Children’s Air Ambulance shop in Stow on the Wold walked away with the WOW! Factor Best Shop Interior Award.

The Air Ambulance Service was also shortlisted in the top three for the Outstanding Charity Retailer of the Year.

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

“Our teams are very committed and dedicated to our charity, and work 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 county 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 received their awards at a ceremony at the Colwick Hall Hotel in Nottingham on Monday 25 June as part of the Charity Retail Association Conference and Exhibition.
