Marie Curie - Fundraising

Hi again, thought I'd update everyone on a fantastic event which has just taken place in our store. Last Thursday - 7th November, we took part in a nationwide fundraising day for our nominated company charity - Marie Curie Cancer Care. Everyone had a fabulous time joining in with the "Blue and Yellow Day". As you can see from the pictures all our store team dressed for the occasion, blue and yellow flowers, blue and yellow cocktails, blue and yellow cakes and of course the flower costume was all part of the fun.

We raised over £1000 on the day as we donated 5% from each sale that day to Marie Curie - Our customers enjoyed not only the food and drinks but an extra 5% off that day too. We also had Smooth Radio broadcasting live from the store as their special celebrations reached their grand finale in our showroom.

Everyone involved felt it was one of the most enjoyable days where lots of money was raised for charity and our customers had lots of fun contributing. All of the team here at Forrest played a great part in making it a fabulous day with special mention to Sharon and Fiona who seemed to be organising absolutely everything and also Annette and Irene who made some great "Blue and Yellow Day" cocktails!

Until next time.
