STAFF at Mablethorpe Co-operative showed their sporting style last Friday as they kick-started the Co-op 2011 Charity of the Year Appeal.

This year the dedicated appeal will focus on Mencap UK for the duration of the year. On Friday, staff raised £333 to get started.

“We’re doing events throughout the year to raise as much as we can. The overall group is aiming to raise over £3 million,” said store manager Neil Bodle.

All staff were encouraged to come to work dressed in sports gear to get the campaign off to an active start.

“At the store, we’re aiming to raise £4,000 for the year, about the same as the Louth store,” Neil said.
