When she left Nationwide, she  trained as a carer and worked in various care settings for 10 years.  Dawn has also done a lot of volunteering for the hospice and in charity shops.

Dawn wanted to work in the community shop because she enjoyed volunteering here and she wanted to get more involved.   Dawn also enjoys working with her sister Lynda who is one of the shop managers.
