A WORKER who helped expand the number of a charity's shop branches from one to 75 has been nominated for a national award.

Adrian Barker, 50, from Bickley, who has worked for Sense in Crayford for more than 20 years, has been shortlisted in their national awards.

The father-of-two will find out on October 23 if he has won the category for Exceptional and Sustained Contribution.

Mr Barker said although the charity's sales cannot compare to those of well known charities, such as Oxfam and British Heart Foundation, they have grown massively.

He said: "On a one to one sales basis we are on par with other charities. I am very pleased with the progress. Sense is a very special charity. It has been in existence for a long time and is a large charity but it does not have a large profile. It is a very emotive and worthy cause.
