Michelle Haddrell:

My name is Michelle and I am one of the store volunteers at TFG. My husband and I relocated to the UAE on Sept 2020 and I found out about TFG by chance after seeing their stalls at one of the flea markets in Dubai. I was delighted to hear that they were planning to open a store on the Palm and knew immediately that this was going to be something special that i wanted to be part of. I joined the team in October helping with the preparations for opening day and was delighted to be an established team member by the time TFG finally opened the store doors for the first time in November . It has been a great experience for me not only allowing me to meet many wonderful fellow thrifters but also to be helping such a good cause as Gulf for Good.
