Notts: Generous Customers Support Children’s Charity

3938020117

Customers at the Nottinghamshire branch of HomeSense have raised £2,480 for the charity Action for Children.

Customers were asked to make a donation in exchange for a Christmas bauble, on which they could write a festive message or childhood Christmas memory to hang on the Christmas tree in the store.

The campaign raised funds for an Action for Children’s young carers service, which provides support to young people who have caring responsibilities for a relative with a long-term illness or disability.

Leila Barron, children’s services manager at Action for Children, said: “We’re extremely grateful to HomeSense customers for their wonderful support.

“We will put the generous donations towards taking our young people and their parents on trips such as going to the seaside, bowling, cinema or theatre.

“These excursions make such a difference to the everyday lives of young carers.”

Suzanne Inch, head of retail for HomeSense, added: “Thanks to our generous customers and associates, we’ve been able to make an enormous difference to the lives of the vulnerable children in our local communities.”
