Two super Lincolnshire Co-op colleagues have been shortlisted for a national retail award each for their hard work and dedication.

The Retail Week Rising Stars Awards celebrate some of the top talent emerging in the industry, and are judged by a panel of people including representatives from major UK retailers.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Tattershall Food Store Manager Matt Brown and Woodhall Spa Food Store Manager Sharon Jones have both made the final cut.

Matt is in the running for the Above and Beyond category. He said it was an honour to be put forward.

“I thought it was great the Society nominated me and I felt proud of that, but to get to this stage is unbelievable,” he said.

“The team should be proud of themselves as well, as without them I wouldn’t be where I am today. It boils down to their hard work and dedication.”

Sharon is in the running for the Store Manager of the Year accolade.

“I’m truly honoured to be recognised by Lincolnshire Co-op and to be shortlisted for these national awards. It’s a great achievement,” she said.

“I went quiet when I found out – which anyone who knows me will be shocked by – but I was just so stumped. I didn’t know what to say. I love my job and I’m really passionate about it, so to do something I enjoy every day and then be recognised for it is a blessing.”

As part of the process both Matt and Sharon have made presentations to a panel.

The winners will be announced at a glitzy ceremony in London on Wednesday18th July.
