Staff and customers from a local store have joined forces to donate craft supplies to a hospice.
Wilkinson, in Mercury Gardens, Romford, with three other Wilkinson stores, donated four trolley loads full of goods to The Treehouse Hospice. It provides care and support to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Staff asked customers to buy and donate a craft item from the store, before delivering them to the hospice for the children.
Graham Baxter, the Romford store manager, said: “This charity event was unbelievably successful and we’d like to thank all our loyal customers who bought and donated a present for the children.
“I’m really proud of the Wilkinson teams, as they are always incredibly enthusiastic about fundraising and encouraging customers to do the same.”
