Blakemore Retail's SPAR St Fagans store in Cardiff has raised a huge £30,379 for the NSPCC.

The funds have been raised over a six-year partnership with the charity, through an array of fundraising events from dress-down days to raffles, as well as in-store bric-a-brac and book stalls.

The store reached this latest figure by hosting a charity birthday party on Friday 1st September in celebration of A.F. Blakemore & Son’s 100-year anniversary.

Store Manager Allen Collett said: “It was fantastic to celebrate 100 years of A.F. Blakemore and again raise money for the NSPCC in aid of those less fortunate.

“On the day, colleagues were involved in various fundraising activities, which raised £423 and pushed us to this staggering new milestone.

“Over the years we have held raffles, boot sales, fancy-dress days and nights out. Colleagues are always enthusiastic about fundraising as it enables them to really get involved with the local community and enjoy themselves.

“It is important to let colleagues have some input so fundraising becomes a fun thing to do that builds strong teams, and not another chore. After all, the better the event the better the fun and more money raised for the NSPCC.”

NSPCC Partnership Manager Thea Karavasilli said: “We’re thrilled to see SPAR St Fagans reach this fundraising milestone.

"We would like to thank the dedicated staff of the store for putting a phenomenal effort into their fundraising activities and thank their generous customers for all of their donations.

"With your help we’ll be able to safeguard some of the nation’s most vulnerable children from abuse.”
