Have your say

Cash Converters staff in Barnsley spent a week raising cash for children’s charity Dreams Come True with a variety of activities.

They created games for customers to play while in store as part of a six-year partnership with the charity, which has so far raised in excess of £150,000 at shops across the UK.

Richard Pilgrim, for Cash Converters, said: “We wanted to get involved and do something fun to raise money for Dreams Come True, which aims to make the dreams of terminally and seriously ill children come true.

“It was evident the staff and customers were pleased to be doing their bit for such a well-deserving charity.”

Peter Newman, Dreams Come True chief executive, said: “The money raised has gone to help the dreams come true for more than 100 children.”
