The Charity Retail Association is the only organisation which represents charity shops in UK and we are delighted to be holding our AGM in London this year. Join our Board of Directors, lead by our Chairman Ben Merrett, and our staff as we review the past year. Catch up with friends, colleagues and meet new CRA members for a day of networking. The CRA team will be on hand and you will have a chance to meet some of our friendly corporate members, some of whom will be exhibiting:
- Charity Fleetcare
- Choice Textile
- CTR Group
- Kudos Software
- RTS Textile Recyclers
We are also delighted to be welcoming Lorna Fallon, Head of Retail at Cats Protection, to discuss their recent growth programme and on being awarded 'Outstanding Charity Retailer of the Year' back in June.
We will also be launching our new Style Me in Seconds Toolkit for charity members in partnership with Woking & Sam Beare Hospice, who will talk about their recent ‘Style Me’ event back in August. The toolkit is aimed at helping charity shops to reach new customers, target a younger audience and shine a positive spot light on the fantastic items that can be found in a charity shop. Every attendee will also come away with a FREEcopy of the toolkit and resources, thanks to the kind support of K3 Retail.
The meeting is FREE to attend for both our members and non-members. The meeting will commence with teas and coffees at 10.30am, lunch will be provided and the meeting should end by 3.00pm, with the exhibition open until 3.30pm.
For further information please contact Julia Cloke at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the team on 020 7697 4080. We look forward to seeing you there.
