The Original Factory Shop in Fraserburgh has raised an incredible £1,130 for local organisation The Cobweb Foundation thanks to its ‘Make a Difference in Your Community’ charity campaign.

Colleagues at the store located at Barrasgate Road have been supporting the local organisation throughout 2011 with a range of fundraising activities including fancy dress, community raffles and sponsored events, helping them to smash their initial fundraising target of £500.

Store Manager Julie Peters said: “We’ve all worked hard to raise this money for The Cobweb Foundation and as it’s such a deserving cause, everyone in the town has been right behind us.

“Customers have been fantastic and we are very grateful for all their support. Let’s hope all our efforts will help to make a difference to local people in need in the community.”

Following an appeal to the community to nominate local causes, The Original Factory Shop Fraserburgh selected The Cobweb Foundation as their charity partner earlier this year.

The Original Factory Shop launched its ‘Make a Difference in Your Community’ campaign in January 2010 and has since donated over £80,000 to local causes across the UK.
