Volunteering for St Davids

i4Ps0avl (1)

Today, the 19th August, I was volunteering for St. David’s Hospice.

We were collecting for the Hospice outside M&S in Llandudno. We even had volunteers riding a stationary bike for charity.

Here you can see me with my charity bucket and the guys behind me riding the bike.

We raised a good amount, thanks to the generous people who took the time to come over and put their cash in the buckets.

St David’s are always on the lookout for volunteers, so if you are interested, give them a call.

The New Primark Store in Llandudno.

primark-2

I visited the new Primark store on the Llandudno Retail Park today.

I was there to buy some clothes, but took the opportunity to ask if I could be shown round the store to check out the accessibility. Regular readers will know I do this with most stores in the area, and although very busy, the supervisor was more than happy to get someone to show me around.

A lovely young lady escorted me around the shop showing me how well it was set out for those with accessibility issues. As well as large accessible changing rooms and wide aisles, I was very impressed with the wheelchair friendly counter they have. It allows wheelchair users to go straight to that counter, avoiding all the hassle of queuing and the bottle-necking that can occur when you try to manoeuvre a wheelchair in the queuing lane. The lift to first floor is huge, so no issues with space for your wheelchair, you could easily get two in with space to spare.

The staff couldn’t do enough for the customer and were extremely helpful indeed.

All in all, a bright, spacious, accessible, and reasonably priced store. Can’t fault it to be honest.
