Staff at the Wilko store in Park Farm Shopping Centre, Allestree, have raised £740 for Macmillan Cancer Support, the store’s regional charity of the year, by hosting a Summer Lovin’ fundraiser.

Team members dressed up as characters from hit film, Grease, to raise lots of money and awareness for the worthwhile cause and also sold homemade cards in store to help fill up the charity’s collection tins.

Mick Fearn, the store manager, said: “Our Summer Lovin’ event was a fantastic treat for team members and customers alike.

“I’m very proud of my team here in Allestree as everyone is really enthusiastic about fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support and encouraging shoppers to do the same.”
