SUPERMARKET staff gave advice to Chelmsford charity shop managers about how make their front window displays more appealing.

Members of the visual merchandise team at Marks and Spencers in High Street, Chelmsford, spoke to representatives from eight shops about making the most of their shop frontage.

The talk was set up by Chelmsford Centre Supporting Voluntary Action with their engagement manager Peter Brooks saying it was great to see a big chain offering help to charities.

Mr Brooks said: “’It was an opportunity that money could not buy and we were so impressed by the attention to detail M&S put in to this event.”
