Store's Generous Donation

24 November 2017

Staff from Marks and Spencer’s Lowestoft store have donated more than £2000 to the James Paget University Hospital.

Collections and an 80s themed day helped raise £2071.56, which will help support patient care on Ward 17.

Overall, Marks and Spencer has donated some £5000 to the hospital in the last few months – and given a badly-needed makeover to a garden next to the hospital’s bereavement suite.

Staff from the store spent two days clearing overgrown vegetation from the garden before planting shrubs and installing features including a bench and bird table, which were made by the local SOLD charity, and plaques from Timpson in Lowestoft.

The bench was donated by staff member Emma Rose in memory of her father.
