M&S EPSOM STORE MANAGER TAKING ON CHARITY WALK

M&S stores across the UK are celebrating their 10th year partnership with Macmillian Cancer Support which has already raised over £16 million since 2010. M&S has lots planned to help raise money for people living with cancer including a charity walk on Saturday 21 September 2019 by local store managers.

Samantha Cope, the Epsom M&S Store Manager will be joining 18 other store managers from branches in the region by doing a 15 mile charity walk for Macmillan on Saturday 21 September. She said: “This year we have committed to raising £150,000 as a region for the charity and the walk is the last event of the month so we are hoping it is successful and pushes us over the target. We have invited the Mayor of Epsom & Ewell Councillor John Beckett to set us off on the walk which starts at 8.30am and it should take us over four hours to get to the Marks & Spencer store in Kew Gardens”

Shoppers can sponsor the charity walk team in store or online at https://www.justgiving.com/search?q=mands4macmillan

Macmillian’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning will be back on Friday 27 September and there are loads of activities happening throughout the month in Epsom store.

Many people who had submitted something for inclusion came on Saturday and were delighted to find that theirs had made it into print. The book contains 50 recipes for starters, main courses, puddings, snacks and drinks. The Ashley Centre’s Recipe for Success book costs £10 with £3 going to the charities and on Saturday alone we sold 51 copies and donated the total amount from the sales to our two chosen charities who received £255 each.”
