Reeds Rains has been supporting Metro Radio and their appeal Cash for Kids, with 17 Reeds Rains branches taking part in Superhero Day.
Superhero Day is a fundraising day encouraging listeners to dress up as their favourite superhero, raise money and donate to support local, disadvantaged children in the North East.
Julie Potter, branch manager at Reeds Rains Durham says: “In the morning, John Wetherell, our regional managing director appeared on Metro Radio’s Breakfast Show encouraging people to visit Reeds Rains. During the day, we were all dressed as superheroes and welcomed Metro Radio and Black Lace to the branch.
Black Lace is a British pop band best known for their songs ‘Agadoo’ and ‘Superman’. We performed the Superman dance outside the branch with them while being filmed by Metro Radio, to help raise money. This was a popular day with the local people in Durham which saw them give generously to this appeal.”
John Wetherell adds: “This has been a fantastic day and it has been great to get behind it, with early indications showing that Reeds Rains has raised more than £1,000. This is a wonderful achievement and I would like to thank everyone for their support.
Reeds Rains looked great with their superhero themed offices and the reaction from the customers has been very supportive, but it still remained business as usual.
The branches provided cakes and sweets as part of the fun, with Reeds Rains Chester Le Street also providing a colouring competition; guess the number of sweets in the jar, and a raffle.”
