On Saturday 24th March, we joined BP Mayflower in store for their Charity Fun Day.
Bright and early on Saturday morning, BP Mayflower staff were already working in store. But on this day, there was a difference. Instead of the usual uniform, staff donned some spectacular costumes for the day. One was extremely obvious, being dressed up as a pink tiger in a comfy onesie. Two were a little harder to spot, especially when they were behind the tills, but they were being carried all day by a teddy bear. We hope they did not hurt their little backs!
The staff had kindly set up a stall for us in the shop, where Hamelin Trust staff and volunteers were standing throughout the day. They were answering customer questions, handing out leaflets, and helping BP with their raffle and cupcake sales.
BP Mayflower put some special prizes out for their raffle this year, including five £20 Platinum Debit Valeting vouchers to be won by some lucky players! A huge thank you to BP staff for donating such wonderful prizes! We hope that whoever won them enjoys the service.
One dedicated staff member and Hamelin Trust support made and decorated 72 delicious cupcakes to be sold at the event. They smelt absolutely delicious and looked almost too good to eat! Only almost, because we know they were very popular with the customers and were gone in a blink of an eye!
A massive thank you to BP Mayflower for organising the event and all customers who made a donation, bought a raffle ticket, or snacked on a yummy cupcake! You raised a fantastic £346.47!
We would also like to thank the Hamelin Trust staff and volunteers who attending, generously giving up their time to help raise awareness and funds for children and adults with disabilities and their carers.
Everyone who took part in the even have helped to make a huge difference to the lives of individuals with disabilities and their families in your local community.
