Store’s support for chemo appeal

Barnstaple M&S gears up for �10k fund-raiser

STAFF at Barnstaple’s Marks and Spencer’s store are holding a two-day fund-raiser for the North Devon Chemotherapy Appeal this week.

The High Street store – which is supporting the appeal as its local charity of the year – hopes to raise �10,000 with a host of in-store activities on Friday and Saturday, including live music and cocktail demonstrations by local bar Shintori.

The purple-themed event will also feature a children’s Halloween colouring competition as well as a hamper prize draw.

Store manager Kate Sharp said: “There’ll be a fantastic atmosphere in the store and we hope as many people as possible will come down and support such a worthwhile appeal across the two days.”
