Marsh Retail Volunteer of the Year Award

This Award is run in partnership with Barnardo's and recognises the hard work of someone who has given up their time to volunteer in one of Barnardo's stores, showing great customer care and and contributing towardes raising money for the protection of children and families.

The 2013 winner is Fiona Jeffrey

Fiona has been volunteering with Barnardo’s since June 2012. After spending ten years out of the workplace due to personal issues, Fiona was initially nervous about interacting with people: when she started volunteering she indicated that she was not keen on having a lot of responsibility but was happy to do any manual work to help the shop. This quickly changed and she is now the most reliable and skilled volunteer working at the store. Fiona always has kind words and a smile for everyone. Customers have said that the shop is the ‘friendliest shop in Wishaw.’ Fiona much deserves recognition for the tremendous effort she has given to her role whilst dealing with the difficulties she faces in her personal life.
