A SUPERMARKET employee helped a charity campaign top the £1m mark.
Warehouse manager Dave Watts was picked by the staff at Morrisons in Winsford to represent the store in a countrywide mass donation that saw the total raised for its charity of the year, the Breast Cancer Campaign, reach the milestone.
Morrisons bosses across the UK froze donations once they hit a total of £999,625 last week, and at noon on Monday, staff at each store simultaneously deposited £1 into a collection bucket - resulting in all 375 Morrisons stores playing their part in hitting the £1m total.
Dave is the longest serving employee at the store, and Winsford's general manager Steve Potter said: 'It is fantastic that Dave has been nominated as the person to be involved in this ceremony to mark the raising of £1m for our charity.
'It represents the biggest charity total ever achieved in the history of the company's charitable donations. We are all very proud that we have reached this milestone and I would like to personally thank all my staff and customers who have taken part in fundraising activities and donated their money to such a worthy cause.'
Pamela Goldberg, chief executive of the Breast Cancer Campaign, said: 'This breathtaking amount of money will play a vital part in helping BCC to continue researching the cure for breast cancer.'
