The Charity Retail Association

Sarah Coles, Simon Dodd, and John Egan elected to Charity Retail Association Board of Directors

We are pleased to announce the results of the recently-held Director elections with Sarah Coles, Simon Dodd, and John Egan successful from a lengthy field of candidates.

Three board places were available in two charity shop representation categories: two from Category A (1-19 shops) and one in Category B (20-99 shops).

Sarah Coles, Head of Trading at The Hospice of St Francis, and Simon Dodd, Head of Retail at The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice, were elected in Category A. Successful in Category B was John Egan, Head of Retail at Naomi House Children’s Hospice. All three take their posts for the first time.

Charity Retail Association CEO, Robin Osterley, said: “We are delighted to welcome Sarah, Simon, and John to the board, having emerged the winners of a very close fought election. We look forward to working with them to further the interests of the charity retail sector.”

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