STAFF at Studley’s Co-op found a rockin’ way to launch their new fund-raising campaign.

The team at the Alcester Road store will be raising money for their charity of the year Carers Trust using a Rock Around The Clock theme - based on the 24/7 nature of caring.

Manager Matthew Pratley said: “The challenge of unpaid caring is an often hidden issue, even though it can affect most families at some time.

“We’re delighted that Carers Trust is our charity of the year and that we have the chance to make a difference to the lives of young people in our communities who undertake practical and emotional caring responsibilities for a family member or friend who cannot cope without their support.”
