STAFF at the Wilko store on Prince Henry Square, Warrington, are offering a helping hand to community groups and charities in the area who need extra support in 2014.

Whether the project benefits young people, families or the elderly, residents can apply for a donation from the store’s Helping Hands budget.

Colette Evans, Wilko store manager, said: “Our team members are ready to roll their sleeves up and give their time to worthy causes, plus we have a wide variety of products which we can donate.”

Application forms are in store and successful applicants will be notified within three months.
