Mary’s Living & Giving Shop for Save the Children
I was responsible for taking Mary Portas’s charity shop philosophy and making it a reality. I developed and lead a roll out program that took Mary’s Living & Giving from being a single test shop to a chain of fifteen.
This involved brand development, site evaluation, acquisition, stock generation, team building, project management and leadership. I wrote the Mary’s Living & Giving Brand Guidelines which are still in use today. The project has raised over £25million to date and continues to generate vital unrestricted income for Save the Children.
