B&M opens third Cornwall store with garden centre

Last Saturday (21 Feb) B&M opened its third home store with garden centre in Cornwall.

10-year-old Madison Glinski was invited to take part in the opening ceremony of B&M?s brand new Home Store & Garden Centre on Southbourne Road, after a successful search for a B&M Local Hero.

The local hero is chosen as someone in the local community who works hard for a particular cause or is renowned for their charity work.

Madison was the town?s overwhelming favourite, nominated by Cornish Gazette readers and the people of St Austell who have been touched by her fundraising efforts.

Parents Stefan and Terrasa accompanied Madison as a special VIP guest at the store opening, along with Mayor of St Austell, Councillor Derek Collins who cut the ribbon.

The 10-year-old can regularly be seen ?and heard – busking with her violin in St Austell town centre, raising money for local children?s hospice Little Harbour (Children?s Hospice South West).

So far the violinist has raised ?34,552 and is closing in on her target of ?50,000.

Little Harbour Children?s Hospice received ?250 worth of B&M vouchers on Madison?s behalf, as a thank you for making the day such a special occasion. The hospice took part in back packing throughout the day, helping raise further funds for the charity.

The new store, which opened on the site of former Homebase, is the second store to open in Cornwall this month, bring the total number of Cornwall stores to three. 80 new jobs have been created as a result, demonstrating B&M?s continued commitment to bringing stable employment opportunities to local communities.
