In order to raise money for the Maggie’s Centre at the Freeman Hospital we organised a bus trip to the lovely city of Blackpool. This is a very popular event that we run early and it’s really popular with the local community.
Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends. The team have previously donated to this charity and after visiting and seeing first-hand the passion they display, we felt compelled to raise money for them again.
On the day, our customers had the opportunity to participate in a game of bingo and a raffle for the chance to win a travel voucher. Overall the trip was a success and it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. In total we have managed to raise £916.70.
Mikey our Branch Manager said, “the event was great and took me back to my younger years” while Julie our Assistant Manager noted that “ everyone enjoyed it - regular customers, new customers, everyone had a great day and both the entertainment and atmosphere on the bus was great”.
Overall, this was a great success and we would like to thank all our customers for their support!
