COLLEAGUES past and present gathered to celebrate a travel agent's 25 years in Knowle.
Karen Duffin, 41, has worked at First Choice Travel, and previously Bakers Dolphin Travel, based in Broadwalk shopping centre since she was 16. She initially started as a trainee and worked her way up to management.

Former colleague Tina Mall said: "Karen has many loyal customers who book with only her year in year out and is friendly to all her know her. Colleagues past and present know Karen as a fun loving party goer, loyal to her work and to her friends.
"Broadwalk is Karen's second home – I'm not sure what First Choice would do without her if she was ever to leave."
A group of Karen's past and present colleagues surprised her with a meal at the Blue Ginger restaurant in Gilda Parade, Whitchurch.
