Beach fun raises money for carers
4:40pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
MEMBERS of staff at a supermarket in Studley were raising money for charity last month, by bringing the beach into their store.
Staff at the Co-op supermarket on Alcester Road, organised the day to raise money for Carer’s Trust, an organisation which supports adult and teen carers with information, advice support and desperately needed breaks.
Staff at the Studley store donned sun hats and shades to dress up for an in-store beach party, collecting money from customers and providing fun activities.
Matt Prattley, manager of the Co-operative store in Studley, said: “It’s great to think that while we’re creating a holiday atmosphere in store we were raising funds to provide much needed breaks for young carers across the UK. We’re determined to keep the fundraising momentum going and are planning more events before the year is out.”
