The manager of a department store has won an award for helping to raise more than £38,000 in a year for a cancer charity.

Carole Rosier, Regional Manager of Wilko on High Street North, East Ham, was presented with the Flame of Hope award at a ceremony at Hotel Russell in central London.

She was also named Corporate Community Supporter of the Year for her dedication to holding events in store for Cancer Research UK.

Carole, who has worked for Wilko for 23 years, also runs stores in Thamesmead, Dartford, Dagenham, Erith, Penge, East Ham, Swanley, Woolwich and Bromley.

She said: “It’s fantastic to be recognised in this way, but this award is for all the team members in all our region’s stores who have gone above and beyond for Cancer Research UK.

“The nine stores have hosted a wide variety of events which have all contributed to our wonderful final total and we’re all looking forward to supporting the charity with another bumper year of fundraising.”
