Customers of BP M&S across Norfolk will 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 Mousehold Lane in Norwich, 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.”

Ray’s team will be taking part in EACH’s Norwich Bubble Rush tomorrow.

On Sunday, Dan Fincham, store manager at BP M&S in Acle will be doing a sponsored skydive at Beccles Airfield.

Sophie Mayes, EACH Norfolk corporate fundraiser, said: “The activities planned sound very exciting and I hope both staff and customers really enjoy getting involved.
