John Quinn

CEO and Founder, Progress Distribution


Progress supports the Barnardo’s charity in fund raising activities and believes strongly in the principles of the organisation.

Barnardo’s are the UK’s largest children’s charity, changing the lives of the children and young people in the UK who most need their help. Barnardo’s believes in children and listens to them – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through.

This belief started with the Barnardo’s founder Thomas Barnardo, who stood up for the most vulnerable children in society.

Progress supports Benardo’s vision – a world where no child is turned away.

NSPCC - ChildLine

Progress supports the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and has helped the organisation raise record funds at the annual White Hat Ball.

Every child deserves the best possible chance to rebuild their life after abuse, That’s why the NSPCC exists. The organisation is the leading children’s charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands.

Join the NSPCC in the fight for every childhood.
