Customers at M&S Simply Food show a healthy appetite for fundraising

By News Team on August 24, 2018

Customers at M&S Simply Food in Hazel Grove have been helping to raise funds for St Ann’s.

Their generosity means the store is half-way towards reaching its £2,000 fundraising target.

A highlight is a virtual bike ride of 874 miles – the distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats – undertaken by community champion Tom Pritchard and colleague Hannah Kirkland.

Every Saturday the pair take it in turns to pedal outside the store on Commercial Road. Fellow charity team members Kirsty Wallace and Sam Stokes are also organising fundraising events.

The whole store is getting behind the efforts of the charity team and we'd like to say a big thank you to all our customers for their kind donations. St Ann's is our charity of the year and we all know people whose lives have been touched by the care of the hospice. Tom Pritchard, Community champion
