A variety of fundraising events held by Primark staff at Middleton Grange raised £959 for the charity.

Manager Eddie Burns said: “A great team effort certainly pushed the boat out when it came to fundraising for the local RNLI volunteers and I was delighted with their efforts.

"During our visit to the station we were given an overview of what goes on which certainly endorsed the decision to raise money for this very worthwhile charity.”
