Romford Homebase staff raise �600 for Teenage Cancer Trust

Workers at Homebase Romford raised more than �600 for a young people’s charity while celebrating their store’s new design.

Staff collected money for the Teenage Cancer Trust while dressing as pirates and hosting kids’ activities such as a magician and play centre.

The store was officially re-opened by the granddaughter of a Homebase employee, six-year-old Joni-Mai Stevens.

“We had a fantastic weekend dressing up and fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust,” says store manager Rob Lawrence. “I’d like to thank everyone who took part in the event for making it such an overwhelming success.”
