Jewson staff build charity cash

Published:  05 April, 2013

Jewson builders’ merchants staff took over a Glasgow charity shop to boost income.

The team of 10 Jewson employees worked at Barnardo's at Broomhill Shopping Centre as part of a competition against teams at other Barnardo's shops to raise as much as possible for the children's charity, which is Jewson's charity partner.

The last ‘Store Wars Challenge’ raised £52,000.

Mary-Ann Todd from Barnardo's said: "The support and enthusiasm of teams such as Jewson is vital to the local success of Barnardo's, helping to raise not only money but also awareness of the charity in Glasgow."
