M&S Aylesbury raises over £2,500 for the Centre
Staff and customers at M&S Aylesbury have raised over £2,500 for the Centre over the last year after the charity was nominated as their Charity of the Year. The cause is particularly close to the team’s hearts because several colleagues have friends and family who have been affected by the disease and use the Centre for support. Colleagues and customers have undertaken a host of different activities including a static bike ride which raised over £250 and a ‘bring and buy’ sale bringing their fundraising total to £2,580.
Elaine Lockett, Admin at M&S Aylesbury, said: “The Chilterns MS Centre is a fantastic charity which makes a real difference to people’s lives. It’s a hugely important cause for our colleagues and customers, and we’re incredibly grateful to be able to support the charity and help make a difference within the local community.”
Sharon Cooper, Corporate Fundraising Manager for Chilterns MS Centre: “We have been blown away by the phenomenal support that we have received from M&S over the past year, the team and local community have really gone the extra mile to support us. The money raised will help fund our treatments and support, including; physiotherapy, oxygen therapy, counselling and occupational therapy. Thank you to the team at M&S Aylesbury who have worked extremely hard and to the generosity of the customers to raise this amazing amount of money. This will provide a further 74 hours of treatment to those that need it.”
We are incredibly grateful to the staff at M&S Aylesbury and their customers. Thank you!
