Store donates to Hospice appeal

Over several months employees at the Grand Arcade store raised funds through in-store loose change collections, cake sales and dress-down days.

The funds will go towards the £60,000 fundraising appeal launched by the Hospice to help modernise the Inpatient Unit and make it dementia-friendly.

Jason Taylor, Operation Manager at BHS, said: "As a national company we have our set charities we help each year but we get a couple of months each year to dedicate to local charities.
"We chose to support the Hospice because a lot of staff said they would like to do something for the Hospice and we had a great time doing it."
