Stuart is the Retail Volunteer of the Year 2014 and works in the Exeter Furniture and Electrical store

Stuart has kidney dialysis twice a week, but this does not stop him volunteering at our Exeter Furniture and Electrical store almost every day.

Stuart has recently been awarded our Retail Volunteer of the Year.

Fantastic contributions

Stuart started as a warehouse volunteer, but has since come into his own on the sales floor, running the collection and delivery desk.

Since Stuart started volunteering at the store there has been an increase in Gift Aid of 73%.

He also uses his own car to get out in the local community to encourage donations to the store and to give house clearance quotes.

Regional Manager Elkie Woodridge says: "Stuart is always very professional and has the respect of the whole team in Exeter, as well as being recognised for his valuable contribution by other Store Managers. Every store needs a Stuart!"
