An Aberdeen Marks and Spencer store has raised £16,500 for a cancer charity that provides specialist end-of-life care.
The shop in Union Square hosted a variety of events, including bag packs, sponsored in-store runs on treadmills and tea parties within the community.
The money has been donated to Marie Curie, whose nurses work day and night in patients’ homes providing hands-on care and vital emotional support to people with a terminal illness and their families. Marie Curie services are free, but their hands-on specialist end-of-life care costs £20 per hour.
The £16,540 raised equates to 827 hours of Marie Curie nursing care.
Rachel Morrison, M&S Aberdeen Union Square manager, said: “Marie Curie is a cause that’s close to the hearts of our team and customers.
“We are thrilled to have raised such a fantastic amount for the charity.”
Marie Curie community fundraiser Lauren Edwards thanked staff and customers for their “generosity and continuous support”.
All the money raised will be used to support terminally-ill people in the local community.
