Children’s Hospice South West and the Salvation Army in Pill are two charities to benefit from a week of fundraising by Southern Co-op.
Employees working in stores across Somerset and Bristol – including Pill, Portishead and Nailsea – managed to raise £1,000 by hosting a range of activities.
Crazy hair days, static cycle rides, walking challenges and abseils were some of the ways staff raised the total.
Jessica Hughes, community investment manager at Southern Co-op, said: “We have been blown away by this year’s activities and it is really special to know this money raised will make a tremendous impact on our local communities – be it a hospital, the environment or a school project.
“We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our customers and communities who got behind the fundraisers.
“With their help we will make a difference.”
