ERA – the UK’s digital entertainment and retail trade association – has announced War Child Records boss Rich Clarke as the first of six people set to be honoured at its inaugural Retail Champion Awards next month.

As well as celebrating the work of the wider War Child charity and the music projects that have raised funds to support that work, the prize will also recognise the partnership Clarke has built with Record Store Day.

This year, that saw War Child Records release a series of special edition records as part of the Record Store Day programme by artists including The Cure, Miles Davis, Brian Eno and Celeste.

“Record Store Day’s partnership with War Child Records has given fans access to special and collectable product while also raising important funds for War Child”, says ERA CEO Kim Bayley. “Rich has been instrumental in making it happen and we are delighted to recognise him at our first Retail Champion Awards”.

The Retail Champion Awards will take place at ERA’s summer party on 6 Sep, with six individuals due to be recognised.
