Help the Hospices is delighted to announce Phyllis Jones as one of the winners at their first Hospice Retail Awards. Phyllis who is the Retail Manager of St Kentigern Hospice was surprised with the Hospice Retail Staff Member of the Year award at the Help the Hospices Retail Conference 2013 in Birmingham yesterday.
When the going gets tough in hospice retail, which it very often does Phyllis will meet whatever the challenge with gusto, a smile and a “let’s get on with it” attitude.
“Phyllis is an inspiration to our volunteers and her co-workers; she keeps a tight ship but is fair to all, and doesn’t expect anyone to do anything she wouldn’t do herself. She will probably go mad, if she finds out that she was nominated, but we feel she totally deserves this award.” Well done to Phyllis and all her team.
