***PLEASE NOTE***
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 Monday 4 May. We are running a series of regular LinkedIn discussion groups on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1pm – 2pm. To join this group simply search for ‘Charity Retail Association Discussion Group’ on LinkedIn, or click on the above link and request to join.

Catering in 2020

In our efforts to go green, all Charity Retail Association events will be 100% vegetarian-catered by default.
