B&Q stores across the British Isles are going to raise money for Syrian refugees tomorrow (Saturday) thanks to an initiative from the Douglas store.
Building manager Graeme Banfield, who suggested the idea to the chain’s top brass, said the Manx branch hoped to raise more than £1,000 for the children of Syria.
‘There are 380 shops and while not all will be taking part we hope most of them will,’ he said.
Among the attractions on offer will be a raffle, bouncy castle, face painting and a marquee devoted to a whole range of children’s fun activities.
There will also be a fire engine, sidecar outfit, police car and rally car for people to take a closer look at.
TT star Conor Cummins has donated some signed T-shirts which are to be raffled off too. Musical entertainment will be courtesy of a Showaddywaddy tribute band.
