It was worth the wait for our rescheduled Charity Retail Awards ceremony which took place this week at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Birmingham. Sponsored by 1st Waste Management, the event was a fantastic opportunity to highlight the many successes of the charity retail sector and the brilliant people who make them happen.

We received an incredibly high standard of nominations this year that reflect the talent, skills and dedication of charity shop teams across the country.

Thank you to all who nominated, our sponsors, the retail teams involved, our judges, everyone who made the Awards a success and of course…
