Ahead of the opening, B&M colleagues were asked to nominate a local charity they think deserves VIP treatment for the work they do for the local community.

They chose Nugent Foodbank, and representatives will officially open the store this weekend.

The foodbank team will also receive £250 worth of B&M vouchers, which will go towards helping the charity.

Nugent Foodbank is supported by a group of volunteers who run a weekly food market and hamper delivery service to support people of all ages and backgrounds including working families, young mothers and older people from sheltered accommodation.

B&M’s Clayton Square store manager said: “Nugent Foodbank really stood out for us so we wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work that they have done, and continue to do. We hope that our donation can help them to continue the great work.”

They added: “Our colleagues have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day, we can’t wait to get the doors open next weekend.”
