Supermarket staff in the pink to raise money for charity
Updated 10:27am Friday 23rd May 2014 in News
BIG-HEARTED staff turned a supermarket pink for three days to fundraise for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Organiser Louise Whymark previously ran a raffle in October last year for the charity and was challenged by them to raise £1,000.
The pink days at the Co-op in Riverside Avenue East, Manningtree brought in £1,170 and she was delighted with how generous people were.
“It went absolutely brilliant and I could not fault any of the staff,” said Louise.
“I had already raised about £500 but now we have reached the target thanks to the kind customers and workers who have donated."
