Saturday was a busy time in the Staples stores across Yorkshire, including Sheffield and Leeds Crown Point stores where me and my colleague Nicky spent the day there meeting customers who were doing their back to school shopping. We were made really welcome by the all the staff and met some really friendly customers who were shopping throughout the day and wanted to support YAA. I would also like to say thanks to Ben Smith of Hewlett Packard, as their company kindly donated two state of the art printers which we are able to offer in both stores as a raffle prize. The 12 Staples stores across Yorkshire who have chosen us for their Charity of the Year include Sheffield and Leeds Crown Point stores, as well as Bradford, Doncaster, Leeds East, Rotherham, Wakefield, Hull, Huddersfield, Grimsby, Halifax and York, so don't forget to look out for how you can support us in your local store!
