They chose the team from, Empowered People, who took centre stage to officially unveil the new B&M store, alongside the Lord Mayor, Coun Andy Hollis.

The charity aim to enable all adults with disabilities from all backgrounds, regardless of gender, race or level of ability, to improve their health and wellbeing through cycling and other activities.

In addition to opening the new store, the team will also receive £250 worth of B&M vouchers to go towards the charity.

The store manager, Kirsty Crowther, said: “The team from Empowered People really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local people in the 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.
