A PERSHORE shop is celebrating after raising thousands of pounds for local organisations.

The Original Factory Shop in Pershore has raised £4,117 for several local organisations thanks to its Make a Difference in Your Community charity campaign. 

Colleagues at the store have been supporting various charities since 2010 with a range of fundraising activities, including fancy dress, community raffles and sponsored events.

Store Manager Katherine Park said: "We’ve all worked hard to raise this money for these local charities and as they're such deserving causes, everyone in the town has been right behind us.

"We’re really grateful for all our customers’ support. Let’s hope our efforts will help to make a difference to those who need it in the community."

Following an appeal to the community to nominate local causes, The Original Factory Shop Pershore selected Pershore Town Carnival as their latest charity partner in January 2013.

This year the shop will be partnering with a national charity and customers can vote for their preferred charity via facebook.com/theoriginalfactoryshop.fans?fref=ts until Thursday, March 27.
