SUPERMARKET workers have raised more than £1,000 for charity to celebrate the first anniversary of its opening.

Staff at the Sainsbury’s store, in Victoria Road West, Cleveleys, celebrated the milestone by raising money in aid of Blackpool-based charity Brian House Children’s Hospice.

And while two of those due to don party outfits were unfortunately struck down with illness, deputy store manager Luke Mason said the day had still been a fantastic success.

Mr Mason said: “We’ve had a cake, we’ve dressed up and there’s been lots of balloons and banners.

“Customers keep asking and they’re happy.

“They can’t believe it’s been a year already.”

Mr Mason spent the day in army combat gear, while store manager Paul Cole took a turn as famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes as a part of the festivities.
