We are very keen to support the local community and regularly hold raffles, bake sales and run special trips to help raise funds for worthy causes. In 2017 we have raised £522 for St Mary's PTFA through running a charity Christmas coach trip to Edinburgh.
We have sponsored the new football kit for Forest Hall Juniors football club - the lads looked so smart when they came to visit us to show off their tops.
We also provided Easter Eggs for the Easter competition at Amberley First School - and were lucky enough to be able to go along and watch their wonderful Easter performance and judge the beautiful bonnets and amazing egg displays - all the girls and boys worked so hard.
Through donations in-store we have raised over £60 for the British Heart Foundation - a cause that is very dear to us - Karen (our Foreign Exchange cashier) completed a sponsored walk in May - along Hadrians Wall, she ached for days afterwards!!
We are really proud to support our partner high school - Astley Community High; we raised over £600 for them on our summer day trip to Whitby - with a similar amount raised for another of our partner schools, St. Mary's too! Thank you so much to everyone who joined us on this fab day out! We will be running a Christmas day trip again too - watch out for details which we will post on our Facebook page and in branch.
In 2017 we have worked hard to support our local community - and we couldn't have done this without the ongoing support of our lovely customers.
