Norwood Gifts Sale – Wednesday 20 June

Beautiful handmade jewellery made by the people that Norwood supports will be on sale at the Harlequin Shopping Centre in Watford from 9am – 6pm on the upper mall outside M&S.

Throughout the day, 10 of the people that we support will be manning the stall in shifts. The sale is an opportunity for them to develop their customer service and retail skills. They will be supported by 10 different members of staff who have volunteered to help as part of their operational roles for non-operational staff placements.
