A fun filled day of Easter activities organised by staff at Wilko Romford, helped raise £188 for three great causes.

From 11am to 3pm on Saturday, March 31, residents were invited to take part in various Easter activities, including an Easter bake sale, face painting and an Easter tombola.

Kazim Sheikh, store manager at Wilko Romford said: “The chosen charities are very close to our hearts and we are aiming to exceed our targets in the upcoming year.

“The fantastic support of our customers and team members means we are able to consistently work with charities that help projects in the local area.”

The fundraising activity launched Wilko’s Together for Families programme, partnering with Alzheimer’s Society, Save the Children and Teenage Cancer Trust, in a bid to raise £5m in three years to support families when they need it the most.

Nick Wilkinson, family charity ambassador said: “Helping good causes and supporting great work in our community is at the heart of what we do at Wilko, and we’re looking forward to achieving our £5m target over the next three years.”
