Blackburn M&S Charity of the Year

26th Mar 2012

Brilliant news! Blackburns branch of Marks and Spencers have made RSPCA Lancashire East branch its charity of the year! for 2012.

Each year the staff at the store on King William Street in the town centre vote for their favourite charity and the one that gets the most votes is offered 12 months of bag packing and fundraising in the store. This fantastic news is made even better because whatever the years total is will be doubled by Marks and Spencer!

We did our first days bag packing last Saturday and raised a tremendous £341.25 - which is actually worth £682.50!!

This is really fantastic news for us as things are getting harder and harder for charities in the current economic climate. We would like to say a huge thankyou to all of the friendly customers who donated to us. And a special thank you to all the M&S staff who voted for us to become their charity of the year!

If you would like to help us with the bag packing for a couple of hours at Marks and Spencers in Blackburn, please get in touch with us on 01200 425176. Our next dates in the store will be Friday and Saturday 18th and 19th May, Friday 25th May and Friday and Saturday 24th and 25th August - all between 11am and 4pm.

Thank you to all of our wonderful bag packers so far, Jayne, Sue, Ken, Jan, Barbara and Rita. Great job!
