Who is your #RetailHero?
Nominate and recognise your #RetailHero today!
To support our CaRe20 appeal, we want to share our appreciation for those working on retail’s frontline. We would like you to nominate an incredible friend, family member or your local shop worker during this difficult time.
Tell us in a comment on our social channels and use the hashtag #RetailHero.
The fundraising campaign 'CaRe20 – Caring for Retail during COVID-19' aims to raise £10m to provide the financial, emotional, physical and vocational support that will be desperately needed by retail workers and their families who may be ineligible for government support during the health emergency.
The money raised through CaRe20 will support thousands of people working in retail through a host of initiatives, including:
- Financial grants to help with food, essential bills, childcare and other necessities
- Telephone and online counselling to help those with stress and anxiety
- Upskilling and retraining for those facing redundancy or seeking a new role
- Online self-help tools and resources through myrtwellbeing.org.uk
If you would like to promote the campaign to your friends and colleagues, please find some tips and assets below.
