M&S Edinburgh has raised a staggering £5,139.58 for Care and Repair Edinburgh; the store’s chosen Charity of the Year.

Over the last year, the store’s fundraising efforts have seen employees take part in a sponsored walk, a bungee jump and a silent auction.

Each year, M&S stores around the country select one charity to support for the full year, hosting fundraising events with customers and employees.

Care and Repair Edinburgh is an independent charity offering advice and assistance to people who are older and/or have disabilities. They provide a range of practical services to help people repair, improve or adapt their homes so that they can live independently in their own homes in comfort for as long as possible.

Jenny McPartlin, M&S Edinburgh Store Manager, said: “Each year we commit to working with a local cause and this year we have been working closely with Care & Repair Edinburgh as it offers a great source of support for people throughout the city.

“We would like to thank all of our customers who have helped support our fundraising efforts over the last year and we hope that the funds raised go some way towards helping the charity continue their great work.”

Elaine MacMaster, Chair of Care and Repair Edinburgh “We are extremely grateful to receive this wonderful donation from Marks and Spencer and their staff, and thank them for all of their hard work. The money will fund a number of small initiatives which will help us to help more of Edinburgh’s older people live at home longer.”

Employees from M&S Edinburgh were also recently invited to the grand opening of Care and Repair’s new premises, at Osborne Terrace, Edinburgh.  The plaque was unveiled by Alex Neil MSP and was attended by Eddie Thomson and Alison Barbour from the store’s Business Involvement Group.
