The store has held a drop-in session and donations throughout the day for families to come and play board games donated by Hasbro for the event, come up with their own board games and take part in a quiz.

Yesterday evening, an adult board game evening raised more than £200 for the cause.

Rachel Morris from the store said: “It’s been good, and it’s the first one we have done for NSPCC.

“We did a couple of board game events and the NSPCC asked if we wanted to do one to raise money for their national Big Board Game Day.

To support the event, donations can also be made online here.
