Chris Luff, store manager for M&S Norwich, said: “We’re really excited to be coming together as a team to support St Martins. Volunteering makes a profound difference to communities, and we believe that lots of small actions from lots of people creates a lasting impact to initiatives that do so much good in Norwich.”
