MORE than £700 has been raised by a sports club by bag packing at a supermarket.
The fund-raising initiative took place at Morrisons in Leek and was staged by members and parents of the North Staffs Rowing Club.
Lesley Powell, from the club, said: "Morrisons supermarket kindly allowed the juniors and some parents from North Staffs Rowing Club to bag pack at their store.
"The bag pack raised a phenomenal £720 towards the purchase of a competition standard single boat.
"Our thanks go to Morrisons staff who were extremely supportive towards our efforts, the bag packing team who worked really hard, and most of all to the generous contributions from the customers who allowed us to pack their bags.
"Special thanks to Anthony Bloor and Sam Bestwick at Morrisons for their help."
