Last Wednesday colleagues dressed in pink in memory of April Reeves aged 7 who was tragically killed on the A371 at Locking on 28th May. In April's memory lots of schools and businesses in Weston-super-Mare raised funds for 3 different charities. I took £66.36 raised to the company today to split between the 3 chosen charities.
Today we welcomed Marie Curie in to our store. Sally & Nick talked to our customers about the charity and charity donations were made.
To celebrate World Book Night, colleagues from Weston-super-Mare library service came along to the store and handed out a FREE book to each adult that wanted a book to read. They do a Book Night for Adults as they also do a Day Book for Kids. Over 100 free books were given out, my daughter wanted The Moaning of Life, so we turned up early to get the free book.
This morning I popped along to Weston General Hospital A&E department where I handed over 33 Easter Eggs. These will be given out to children ending up in A&E over the Easter weekend. I'm pleased to announce that we collected 98 Easter eggs in total with the other 65 being given to Baytree Special school last week.
After collecting Easter Eggs in store with our appeal, today I went along to Baytree School, where i was invited to their special end of term assembly. The older students went to The Playhouse on Monday night in a dance show, so they did their dance and other students were congratulated with their good work. The students are all truly inspirational and at the end of the day I handed out to each student a donated Easter Egg. 73 Easter Eggs were collected, but the school only required 65, so the other eggs will be given to A&E at our local hospital for any children turning up there over Easter. You still have time to donate as I will be taking any further donated eggs to the hospital next Thursday.
