This isn’t just any fundraising, this is Marks and Spencer fundraisng!
As part of a national “100 days of fundraising” Marks & Spencer staff all over the country will be trying to raise cash for local charities with all sorts of crazy schemes.
Staff at the Buxton branch have already had a bag-pack in aid of the team but now plan a 250 mile sponsored cycle ride. But a cycle ride with a difference as they’ll never actually leave the store. Staff instead will be riding the whole length of the Pennine Way on a cycling machine firmly rooted to the floor. No promlems with the weather then!
Owen Dyde, M & S store manager, said, “We are proud to raising money for Buxton Mountain Rescue Team and hope that the funds we raise will make a real difference to the important service they provide. M & S is firmly committed to working with local communities and it is great to see our employees care about supporting local causes.”
M & S raised £500 for the rescue team last year as part of its 125 year celebrations and this year the staff are hoping to double the contribution.
The team sends a huge thank you to all those taking part and to those who sponsor the event or drop a few pennies into a box. Its just more great local support from the great local supporters. THANK YOU.
