An Eastbourne shop has raised £98 for the NSPCC by hosting a charity birthday party in celebration of A.F. Blakemore & Son Ltd’s 100-year anniversary.
Earlier this month, colleagues at the SPAR in Terminus Road held a raffle to raise money for the children’s charity.
SPAR Staplehurst is owned and operated by Blakemore Retail, which is part of the A.F. Blakemore & Son Ltd group of companies. Throughout 2017 A.F. Blakemore is celebrating 100 years as a successful family business.
A.F. Blakemore Commercial Director Caoire Blakemore commented, “To mark our centenary, we have organised a series of commemorative events to celebrate the company’s unique culture and history and positively engage with employees and the local communities we serve.
“On 1 September, more than 300 charity birthday parties took place across A.F. Blakemore’s trading area to celebrate one of the company’s five core values: making a significant, positive contribution to the community.”
