SHS Group wins Judges Award

The SHS Group recently took part in an apprentice style challenge with Business in the Community and their staff nominated Charity Marie Curie. The challenge was to take over a Marie Curie shop for the day and compete against 13 other companies such as ASDA, BT, Spar and NI Water.

The Group took over Marie Curieís Holywood store and their circus themed day included live entertainment, face painting, prize giveaways, special offers, unveiling of new stock and an appearance from Chewie!!!

The Group grew sales in Marie Curieís Holywood store on the day by over 500% and we also donated 106 bags worth of stock with each donated bag equating to one hour of Marie Curie nursing care and all the bags combined raised a total of £2,000. The total amount raised on the day by all fourteen companies was over £39,000 which is an amazing result for the charity.

The Group also managed to win the Special Judges Award which was a special award introduced this year for the company who had excelled in four key areas: creativity and innovation, presentation of the shop, customer service and each organisationís sustainability report.
