Grant Groome is off to the Sahara

Published on: 11th February 2013

Grant Groome, buying director children’s for TK Maxx Europe, will be taking part in a Sahara Trek of 100km in support of the Comic Relief charity.

Grant will complete the trek dressed as a different Children’s character on each of the six days, and Graham Gardiner of Rubies has kindly donated all of the outfits. TK Maxx has been the main retail sponsors of Comic Relief (Red Nose day) for the past eight years, and has raised over £10m for the charity, which focuses on helping young people and families in the UK and Africa.
