Hectors Barn is one of over 250 Annie Sloan stockists across the UK who have joined forces in a bid to help raise £25,000 for the NSPCC, News about this special event is on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by following # AnnieSloanLate.

Amanda Rowe, of Hectors Barn, said: “We have been part of the Annie Sloan Stockist community since December 2013. As a group, the UK stockists collectively decided that if we joined forces we could potentially raise a lot of money for charity. We chose the NSPCC because we always turn our fundraising efforts towards a children’s charity at this time of year.”

Sara Williams, NSPCC regional corporate fundraising manager, said: “We are delighted that Hectors Barn is supporting the NSPCC. The money raised will help us run our vital services and helplines that are so often a lifeline for vulnerable children and young people. It will make a difference to the lives of children in North Norfolk and across the UK. On behalf of all the children I would like to say thank you to Hectors Barn staff and customers. Ninety per cent of our funding comes from donations and we simply couldn’t continue to provide our services without the continued generosity of supporters like Hectors Barn.”
