"Customers only see the smiling Christine in the shop, but when they ask if we have certain items of clothing that would be suitable for various shows, or fancy dress events they are attending, she will usually manage to find items in the upstairs storage areas that will fit the bill.
"Christine liaises with various organisations to create placements, consisting of a few hours each week, for people with various disabilities.
"At times the pressures on her mount up, but the atmosphere never changes. So for being such a friend to all, I say a big thank you to you Christine, for just being you."
