CHARITABLE staff and customers at Bridlington’s Iceland store dug deep to raise a staggering £5,100 for Alzheimers Research UK.
The supermarket held a seven-week fund-raising drive with a host of activities instore including fancy dress and raffles, plus a tombola in the Promenades Shopping Centre.
The fantastic total means that the Bridlington store is in the top ten of all Iceland branches nationally when it comes to raising money for charity.
Manager Robin Shaw was delighted with the efforts of staff and customers and all the local businesses that supported the fund-raising.
He said: “The amount of things that the staff did was endless.
“And some other companies went out of their way to help us and we would like to thank them and all our customers who have donated not just their money, but also prizes.
“We raised the eighth largest amount of all the Iceland stores which is quite an achievement.
“The people of Bridlington gave very generously.”
Mr Shaw wished to particularly thank the following businesses who supported the various events; The Promenades Shopping Centre, the Telegraph pub on Quay Road, the Coachman pub on Hilderthorpe Road, Gala Bingo, Sole Diva @ Street Cred in the Promenades and Downes Butchers on Chapel Street.
He also commended staff member Nigel Brown who single-handedly raised £3,000 with his tombola stall in the shopping centre.
