Not just charity shops - our roots in the community!

Posted by on November 30th 2012 in Fundraising

I am so proud of our shops.  My role as Retail Manager, supporting and developing Devon Air Ambulances’ 11 shops all over Devon, is rewarding, occasionally challenging and always diverse.

Our shops are a great way of staying in touch with our supporters and volunteers.  Even in the current climate, we have had a great year thanks to plenty of donations and lots of regular shoppers.

With more and more donors signing up for Gift Aid on their unwanted goods we have generated a staggering £40,000 rebate from the tax man this year.  Amazing!

Good stock is of great...

It’s not necessarily my preference to have experienced the benefits...
