Fund-raisers are supermarket stars

Worcester Editorial 3rd Jun, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

TWO CITY fund-raisers were treated like stars for the day when they officially opened a revamped food store.

Gareth and Kris Price cut the ribbon of the Co-operative Food store in Canada Way last Thursday (May 29) following its £396,000 makeover.

The pair were invited to the re-launch in recognition of the fund-raising work they do in Worcester for the Lullaby Trust, raising awareness of sudden infant death syndrome, after they lost their baby Gracie earlier this year.

The new-look state-of-the-art store has been redesigned to make it easier and more enjoyable for shoppers and will also be a hub of the community by posting information about local events.

Bill Ellis, store manager, said: “I’m excited about welcoming customers into the new-look store, which will offer a completely different shopping experience.

“We know our customers lead busy professional and personal lives, and I’m confident the new store will provide them with exactly what they need to pick up delicious food conveniently.

“The Co-operative is a community retailer and we are committed to playing a real role in local life. I was delighted to welcome Gareth and Kris into the store to share in our special day and to raise awareness of the great work they do.”
