Charity fundraisers to hold beach party on Spennymoor high street
12:24pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
A SUMMER beach party is to be held on Spennymoor high street as staff at a Co-operative store dress up to raise funds for charity.
Staff at The Co-operative Food store, on Oxford Street, are to dress up in sun hats and sunglasses in aid of the Carers Trust.
The beach party will take place as the Carers Trust has been chosen as The Co-operative’s Charity of the Year for 2013.
Neil Murrell, manager of the Spennymoor Co-operative store, said: “We hope that all our customers will visit the store to join in the beach-themed fun.
“It’s great to think that while we’re creating a holiday atmosphere in store we’ll also be 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.”
The Carers Trust helps the estimated 500,000 young adult carers across the UK who look after a family member or friend.
It helps provide advice and support plus short breaks for the carers. The summer beach party takes place on Friday, August 23.
