A real buzz in store

Store director, Caroline Matthews says: ‘We’re so proud to have raised nearly £300 for Text Santa and it was the perfect way to wrap up 2015!

‘The appeal targeted various UK charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, which does incredible work supporting those who have cancer. The tombola and bake sale created a real buzz in store and we’re grateful to everyone who came in and donated, as well as the staff for making their own contributions.’
