What Other Charity Retailers Are Saying
“My team have really enjoyed and benefited from the training.
It’s been simple to access, great value for money and so good to be able to have a one-stop shop for all my team’s training needs.”
Iain Burnett, Head of Retail
“I’ve now completed the course and want to say thanks. I very much enjoyed it and found the content really helpful. I now have lots of great ideas which I look forward to implementing. “
Amanda Ashford, Shop Manager, Wandsworth Oasis
“I gave your training to one of my furloughed staff to try out, and they think it’s fab. Lots of useful content that doesn’t reinvent the wheel but gives useful, practical suggestions. The fact that both you and Jayne have so much experience really shines through. They loved how “empowering” it is, which is the culture of my department. Looking forward to rolling it out across my team later this week. Thanks for such a good resource.”
Ross Henderson, Head of Retail, Severn Hospice
“Congratulations on producing a wonderful “lockdown learning” resource which will help me train and update the retail staff and prepare them to return. It will also help me to maintain a connection – and I do believe it will positively impact their mental health and well being.”
David Burrell, CEO, Primrose Hospice
“Thank you – I have found this really thought-provoking and helpful.”
“Thank you for a very insightful session.”
“Very useful and particularly thought-provoking.”
Delegate feedback from our Equity, Inclusion & Diversity session

Susan Gibson, Shop Manager, Highland Hospice
“Excellent course and tutor, information was so relevant and helpful”
Anne Beard, Interim Warehouse Manager, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance
“I think the course was amazing and should be rolled out nationwide”
Delegate on our Equity, Diversity & Inclusion course
“As an accountant advising small charities, I was looking for a detailed introduction to the Retail Gift Aid scheme and how to implement effectively – the course was exactly what I was hoping for.”
