ELLESMERE Port’s new-look Wilkinson store has reopened its doors to the public.
Ellesmere Port mayor Lynn Clare helped to unveil the revamped store on Marina Walk last Thursday.
And, as part of the celebrations, representatives from Macmillan Cancer Support, the store’s regional charity of the year, were presented with a donation of funds raised by staff.
The mayor was also presented with a donation for her own charity appeal, which supports a number of local charities, including the women’s and children’s wards at theŠCountess of Chester Hospital.
The first 40 shoppers in store each received a complimentary badminton set and the first 100 given a cupcake.
To brighten up the store, children from Hooton Child Care Nursery took along some summer-themed posters, for which they received an arts and crafts donation from Wilkinson.
Store manager Chris Kearns said: “The relaunch was a huge success and the store is looking great.
“Its bright and revitalised look, combined with our devoted store team, has made Wilkinson the store to visit in Ellesmere Port.”
Sharon Cottam, corporate account manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “All the funds raised by Wilkinson’s will go a long way toward improving the lives of people diagnosed with cancer.
“Donations made through fundraising make up 96% of Macmillan’s income and, through our work, the Macmillan team funds nurses and health care professionals, provides emotional and physical support and also contributes toward building cancer care centres.
“We are therefore incredibly grateful to Wilkinson staff and customers for their support.”
