Staff home in on Easter fundraising

Have your say

MORE than £1100 has been raised for the NSPCC by the British Home Stores (BHS) in Edinburgh, during an Easter weekend extravaganza.

Staff at the stores in Cameron Toll, Ocean Terminal and Princes Street took part in variety of fundraising activities including in-store collections, nail painting, raffles, fancy dress and promoting the sale of the NSPCC teaspoons.

BHS restaurants also supported efforts, offering customers a food raffle with prizes ranging from a cup of tea to a fish supper.

In total, BHS stores across the UK raised more than £68,000 over the Easter weekend.

Louise Taylor, head of marketing for BHS, said: “All the staff at BHS are always keen to raise money for the NSPCC, especially if it means having fun.

“The Easter weekend extravaganza was a great success and we are thrilled that our efforts have paid off. By harnessing the goodwill of our customers we’ve raised a fantastic sum for the NSPCC’s vital work.

“It is so important that we continue to support the NSPCC as their services make such a huge difference to the lives of children and young people.”
