Christine is a dedicated retail volunteer, and has always been at the forefront of her store’s fundraising efforts for Barnardo’s. This has been even more evident since the store reopened after the pandemic, when continued restrictions meant that the store was not able to return to their traditional methods of fundraising. Christine came up with the idea to do regular bake sales at the store, encouraging customers to spend that little bit of extra money. In the first week, the store raised an additional £500, and these cake sales have come to be expected by the customers. Christine is an asset to Barnardo’s and provides excellent customer service to everyone who comes into the store. She has battled personal and family issues to continue her volunteering, and from June 2020 to April 2021 has helped to raise an additional £10,000 for the store.
