Customers who visit BP M&S stores across Norfolk are set to be greeted by staff in fancy dress this weekend.

They will also be able to take part in a series of fun activities – from treasure hunts to face painting – as the filling station chain raises money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Ray Mills, store manager at BP M&S in Norwich’s Mousehold Lane, said: “The idea is for staff at our 16 outlets across the area to have as much fun as possible with our customers whilst raising loads of money.”

His team will be taking part in EACH’s Norwich Bubble Rush today (Saturday) as the 5k fun run at Earlham Park is held. And tomorrow (Sunday) Dan Fincham, store manager at BP M&S in Acle, will be taking part in a sponsored skydive at Beccles Airfield in Ellough.

Sophie Mayes, EACH Norfolk Corporate Fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted BP M&S are dedicating this upcoming weekend to fundraising in our name. The activities planned sound very exciting and I hope both staff and customers really enjoy getting involved.”
