And the winners for the Lighthouse Recognition Awards in November are...

Lighthouse Shop of the month - DERBY for amazing sales

Staff member of the month - Lucie Stevenson for promoting the work of Valley CIDS in a newspaper interview 

Volunteer of the month - Amy Straw (pictured at the top of the page) for growing to achieve good customer service, upselling and a winning smile.

Amy was quiet and shy when she first started at the Lighthouse Charity Shop and struggled to speak to customers. In the time that she has been there, she has gained loads of confidence, talks to customers and has the most lovely smile, which she uses all the time she's there. She has also been talking to customers about our Christmas cards and she's the top seller at the shop. (The bottle of bubbly that Amy is holding was bought for her by team because they were so thrilled that Amy had won.)
