The Charity Retail Association

Karen Bilsby elected to Charity Retail Association board

We are pleased to announce the election of Karen Bilsby to the Charity Retail Association board of directors.

Karen, who is Head of Retail for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, begins her second spell as a board member, having served from 2007 until 2014.

She will represent members who have between one and 19 shops (Category A) and has worked in the charity retail sector for nearly two decades. Karen was successful after a ballot of eligible members and replaces Simon Dodd, who stood down in April this year.

Robin Osterley, Charity Retail Association Chief Executive, said: “Karen has undoubted experience in charity retail over many years and we are delighted to welcome her back to our board.”

The newly-constituted board will meet for the first time later this month.
