Beach party in Westbury
11:00am Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
The Co-op store in Westbury turned tropical as members of staff dressed up for an in-store summer beach party to raise funds for Carers Trust, The Co-operative’s charity of the year for 2013.
An estmated 500,000 young adult carers in the UK care for a family member or friend.
Money raised by The Co-operative will assist the charity in its work to tackle feelings of isolation and to provide desperately needed breaks, information, advice and support for 14-25-year-olds facing the challenges of caring for a loved one.
Simon Bush, manager of The Co-operative Food store on Kingfisher Drive, said: “It’s great to think that while we were creating a holiday atmosphere in store we were raising funds to provide much needed breaks for young carers across the UK.
“We’re determined to keep the fundraising momentum going and are planning more events before the year is out.”
