UK’s longest serving charity shop volunteer

The Charity Retail Association has launched an appeal to find the UK’s longest-serving charity shop volunteer.

Charity retailers have been urged to nominate their volunteers and tell the Charity Retail Association about their achievements and what has kept them coming back to work at the shop over the years.

The winner will be announced and honoured at a ceremony during Volunteers’ week, taking place from 1 to 7 June. 

Nominees will be judged by a panel of charity retail experts looking at the time they have served and the level of impact they have had on the charity, community and other volunteers.

To nominate a long-serving volunteer email Liam Challenger at
