Davina is one of our wonderful retail warehouse volunteers and she is also our Christmas card queen!
She has been volunteering for St Gemma’s for a number of years now and organises the ordering, packaging and shipping of our Christmas cards every year. Her dad used to volunteer for St Gemma’s as a van driver for many years too and Davina very kindly also wanted to give her time helping us every week.
Lockdown last winter was tough for our retail team and when all of our charity shops had to close throughout November and December, we had to come up with new ways of working. Because our shops were shut, we experienced the biggest volume of online orders for Christmas cards that we’ve ever had. Davina took the reins and organised the whole system to make sure we could deliver them all!
She is absolutely fantastic and we couldn’t deliver all of our cards without her. In fact, she’s preparing this year’s stock right now, so keep your eyes peeled as you’ll be able to buy them on our website very soon! 👀
Thank you Davina, you’re amazing! ❤️
