Bamboozle Makes M&S Charity of The Year!

Marks and Spencer’s, Gallowtree Gate branch based in Leicester’s city centre have chosen Bamboozle as their Charity of the Year for 2017/2018!

This coming Saturday, 14th October 2017, staff are organising a night of music at Leicester Racecourse in aid of Bamboozle.

Ben Lewsey, the store’s recent Finance & Operations Section Manager, is also a talented singer, and performs as Gary Barlow in a popular Take That tribute band: Triple T. Ben will be performing a selection of classic hits, followed by a DJ set. There’ll also be fabulous raffle prizes, a range of nibbles, and the Race Course’s cash bar available for drinks.

Lesley Tims, Customer Assistant and Business Involvement Group Rep for M&S first encountered Bamboozle two years ago. Lesley’s enthusiasm for Bamboozle spread to other members of the team: “I was so inspired by Bamboozle’s work that I nominated them for the Charity of the Year. I’m thrilled they won the vote – it’s great to be supporting such a wonderful cause”.

“We were so delighted to learn that we were M&S Charity of the Year!” adds Jade, Bamboozle’s Marketing Co-ordinator. “They recently did a fantastic staff bake sale which raised a £127! A music night at Leicester Racecourse with Ben’s Gary Barlow Tribute is a wonderful way to bring people together for charity – we’re looking forward to it!”

The event runs from 7.30pm until 11.30pm in the Club Suite, (Leicester Racecourse, Leicester Road, Oadby, Leicester LE2 4AL). Tickets are a steal for just £5, and are available to Marks and Spencer’s staff via the Gallowtree Gate branch. The event is also open to Bamboozle supporters who would like to come along for an evening’s entertainment. Tickets for supporters are available from Bamboozle HQ by calling 0116 255 2065. Tickets also available on the door.
