A CHILDREN’S charity has been given a funding boost thanks to generous staff and shoppers.

The BHS in Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, Hartlepool, has raised £220 for the NSPCC thanks to an Easter weekend fundraising drive.

Store staff took part in variety of activities including in-store collections, nail painting, raffles, fancy dress and promoting the sale of the NSPCC tea spoons.

BHS restaurants also supported fundraising efforts, offering customers a food raffle with prizes ranging from a cup of tea to a fish supper and selling NSPCC tea spoons for a £1 donation.

In total BHS stores across the UK raised more than £68,000 over the Easter weekend.

Since 2008, BHS has raised an impressive £800,000 for the NSPCC and have committed to continue raising money throughout 2012-2013.

All the money raised by BHS will help make a difference to the lives of children and young people in the North-East and across the UK.
