Staff at the SPAR store at Plymouth Railway Station have staged their own VE Day celebrations to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity.
Manager Linda Graham and her team rolled back the years to the 1940’s and enlisted the support of railway staff for the all day event on the station concourse.
Her staff worked for nothing on the day, with women dressing up as Land Girls and men in army uniforms and 1940’s music was played throughout the day.
Rail travellers and other customers were offered a variety of refreshments and asked to make a donation to the cause.
It was the second time the fundraising event was held – two years ago, Linda and her team raised £1,800 for Help for Heroes. The charity was chosen because one of her staff, Colleen Best, lost a cousin in the Afghanistan war a few years ago.
The Plymouth station outlet is one of four SPAR stores run by Goss Bros Ltd. in the South West.
Pictured below is Colleen with the store Supervisor Faye. Below this is the store and stations staff celebrating.
