The management and staff from B & M raised a total of £2,256.64 for Macmillan Cancer Support following the re-opening of their store at Junction 1, Antrim.
The Mayor of Antrim, Councillor Brian Graham had reopened the store a few days earlier and was delighted that this expansion had led to the creation of 30 more jobs in the town, which had actually doubled their workforce.
A great day was had by all at the store on Saturday, July 19 when a charity fun day was organised by the staff and Macmillan volunteers.
There was something for everyone including face painting, balloon modelling and music.
The Star Wars Troopers also turned up to join in the fun.
Two members of staff helped to boost this collection for Macmillan by having their heads shaved and members of staff were also seen to be dancing around the store along with Star Wars and customers.
Mrs Paddy Wallace, Chairman of the Antrim Macmillan Fundraising committee expressed thanks to the local store manager Caroline McAuley and Billy Parker, the area manager.
She complimented them on their enthusiasm and energy which was reflected in the cheerful support by staff and customers alike.
Local fundraiser Cynthia Cherry extended her thanks to B & M and to the local community for their generosity towards this well worthwhile charity.
