The chosen charity is Daventry Volunteers Centre, who have recruited volunteers for charities and not for profit organisations as well as supporting projects that help deliver better services to the people in the Daventry area, like the New Street Cafe Project and Happy at Home Partnership.

In addition to opening the new store, the representatives will receive £250 worth of B&M vouchers as a thank you for taking part and for all their work in the community.

B&M store manager, Sanjay Kakab, said: “The team from Daventry Volunteers Centre really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for the local community, we wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work they do.

“We hope that our donation can help them to continue the great work they do.”
