Events and Covid-19

Given the current government guidelines on social distancing and restricting travel, we have taken the decision to put a pause on our training and events programme until July. We are running a series of regular Zoom calls to keep members connected and have set up a LinkedIn discussion group. To join this group simply search for ‘Charity Retail Association Discussion Group’ on LinkedIn.

If you have any queries regarding our training and events please contact Julia Edwards, Head of Events, on julia@charityretail.org.uk

Catering in 2020

In our efforts to go green, all Charity Retail Association events will be 100% vegetarian-catered by default. You are still very welcome to opt for a meat/fish-option so please make sure this is noted in the dietary requirements section when booking, alongside any other dietary requirements you may have.
