TK Maxx asks its customers for positive energy in aid of Comic Relief at Denton
The TK Maxx store at Denton’s Crown Point Shopping Park is keeping up the company’s fine traditions of support for Comic Relief thanks to the efforts and imagination of its staff, and generosity of its customers.
Since 2004, when TK Maxx first became a major sponsor of the charity, the company has raised a staggering £6.7m. The Crown Point store has featured among the top performers throughout, and this year is no exception.
Leading the charge is store employee Joanne Walker. This mother of 3 from Droylsden is using her bachelor of science degree in complimentary therapy to perform Reiki treatments for customers in return for a Comic Relief donation.
The Reiki sessions will take place between 11am and 3pm in the store on Saturday March 12. As well as performing the therapy, Joanne will also explain some of the science. “Reiki is all about converting negative energy into positive energy, allowing our life force to flow in a natural and healthy way, “ explains Joanne.
For people who are already happy with their life force, there are plenty of other fund raising entertainments going on in the store on Saturday, including make up sessions for mums, a bouncy castle, face painting and competitions. Customers can also take advantage of the exclusive classic Liberty bag which has been developed exclusively for charity for a mouth-watering £12.99, of which £4 goes straight to Comic Relief.
“ Yet again I have been amazed at how quickly and imaginatively our staff have been responding in all sorts of ways to this year’s Comic Relief Challenge,and continue to be impressed by the generosity of our customers for this great cause,” says TK Maxx store manager, Keeley Griffin.
