£500 charity goal for Spilsby store

A SPILSBY shop’s latest charity push is set to benefit the Lincolnshire Ambucopter.

The Original Factory Shop has chosen the good cause as its charity partner for the year after it asked for nominations from the local community.

It hopes to raise a minimum of £500 through special events in the coming months.

Store manager, Sophie Jones, said: “We had a lot of local causes come forward this year.

“It wasn’t an easy decision but after considering each application carefully, we thought that we could really help to make a difference to Lincolnshire Ambucoptor in 2011.

“Colleagues have got behind the campaign and we have lots of ideas that worked well last year.

“But we couldn’t do it without the support of our loyal customers and for that we are very grateful,” she added.

The Original Factory Shop’s commitment to raise £500 locally is part of a wider nationwide campaign by the chain to help out good causes across the length and breadth of the UK.
