Peterborough’s Dunelm store has been busy supporting the local community with a number of  generous donations by kind customers and colleagues.

The Maskew Avenue Retail Park-based store is connected to a number of community causes and charities in the Peterborough area and has recently made a donation to the Little Miracles Project - a charity which supports families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and life-limiting conditions.

The donation included a range of baking products for families to create some home-made treats.

The store is also in partnership with the Paston Farm Community Centre who they make regular donations to including funds from their charity box, preloved arts and crafts materials, and wallpaper.

Employees and customers even came together to knit blankets which were donated to the Paston Farm families and children. Other local organisations the store have supported are Maggie Mooney, Stepping Stones Nursery School and Free2BYou.

Sonia Bathija, community champion at Dunelm Peterborough said: “At Peterborough, we are so proud of all the amazing donations made by our employees and customers.

"It’s a pleasure to be able to help such inspiring charities like Little Miracles and Paston Farm and we look forward to supporting more local organisations in the future.”

Alison from the Paston Farm Community Foundation added: “The Peterborough staff are so supportive of the local community. We really appreciate the generous donations made to Little Miracles, they really have gone a long way.”

The Peterborough store also hold regular give aways on the Peterborough community group Facebook page.
