The Curry Rivel filling station is helping to light up the night sky in the village this festive season with a donation of £200 to the local council.
The Nisa Local at County Stores on Taunton Road donated the funds to Curry Rivel Parish Council through Nisa's Making a Difference Locally charity, to fund new Christmas lights for the village and help spread the festive cheer.
Making a Difference Locally raises money from customers purchasing items from Nisa's Heritage own-label range and selected branded products which carry charitable donations from the suppliers. Stores are then able to donate funds raised to a local good cause of their choice within a 10 mile radius, to ensure money raised by the community stays within the community.
Karen Clapp, Store Manager of the Nisa Local, commented: "We are delighted to be able to support the council with this donation towards new Christmas lights, as everyone in the village will benefit from seeing the festive tree and lights and be able to enjoy them."
Andy Anderson, Deputy Chair of Curry Rivel Parish Council, added: "I would like to thank Nisa for their generosity and the donation of £200. The donation has been used for purchasing outdoor Christmas tree lights for the Curry Rivel village Christmas tree. In addition we have also purchased a Christmas tree stand and a securing mechanism to ensure that the tree and lights remains where they are. I am sure the donation will serve the community well for years to come."
