Two cities set to undertake 24 projects over seven days
The Exeter M&S store is calling on local residents to roll up their sleeves and Spark Something Good by joining over 100 M&S employees in a week of volunteering that will positively impact 24 projects over seven days across Exeter & Plymouth.
Spark Something Good will see 24 projects at the heart of local communities take place across 24 cities in the UK and Ireland over the course of 24 months. Plymouth and Exeter have been selected as the next cities to host an M&S Spark Something Good event following the success of projects in Newcastle, Bristol, Leeds and Bradford.
From Monday 5 September to Sunday 11 September 2016, M&S colleagues and customers will come together and donate their time to improving local community spaces.
Registration to take part opens today (18 August 2016). To find out more and sign-up, simply visit the dedicated page at www.neighbourly.com/mandsvolunteer, developed by Neighbourly, the social network for social good.
Spark Something Good is part of Plan A, M&S’s ground-breaking eco and ethical programme. It was developed following extensive research and dialogue which revealed that getting involved in community projects enhanced people’s lives. M&S aims to spark Exeter residents into action by showing just what can be achieved when people come together united by a common goal.
Volunteers can also sign up for Spark Something Good by calling 0117 915 1279.
