Coffee Shop Manager Receives Kindness Award

A local radio station has paid South Downs Nurseries a visit after staff nominated a colleague for a special prize.

Karin Reinger, Coffee Shop Manager at The Barn Coffee Shop & Restaurant at South Downs Nurseries, was nominated to More Radio’s ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ contest by her colleagues in recognition of her charity work and kindness towards others.

Representatives from the More Radio team surprised Karin at work with flowers and chocolates, whilst colleagues and customers applauded.

Karin’s most recent project is the highly successful ‘Old Bag Campaign’ which ran at the garden centre throughout July, resulting in dozens of second hand bags being filled with toiletries and donated to local charity Off The Fence, to be handed out to the homeless women of Brighton and Hove. Her next project will involve asking her customers to donate woolly hats in preparation for the coming winter months, in support of the charity’s Project Antifreeze, helping the homeless and vulnerable stay warm during cold weather.
