A big well done to colleagues at five of our stores who raised £1,300 to support a fundraising campaign aiming to send four-year-old Zac Oliver to America for pioneering leukaemia treatment.

Zac has a rare form of leukaemia called near haploid, and his family and friends are hoping to raise £500,000 to pay for him to undergo CAR-T cell therapy in Philadelphia.

Colleagues at our Telford, Donnington Wood, Telford Living, Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury stores all paid to wear red for a day to show their support.

Sharon Fenn, who's community champion at our Telford store, said: "It's a cause which has really touched everyone in the store. Their fundraising campain is all over Facebook and the local media here, and we wanted to do something to support it.

"Our people trading manager Jacquie Sage called round all five stores to arrange for us all to wear red on the same day. Everyone paid a minimum donation of £1 to the appeal.

"The community has really got together for Zac and we're really pleased with how everyone bought into the event in our stores – it was fantastic."
