THE American dream descended on Co-op Travel in Church Street last week as staff promoted the firm’s fundraising efforts.

On Friday March 30 the shop was decked out in the stars and stripes and staff donned costumes synonymous with Stateside, from basketball players and cowboys to Minnie Mouse. All customers booking through the Co-op get a chance to donate £2 to the work of the Travel Foundation - the industry’s charity set up to make sure the inhabitants of the UK’s favourite tourist hotspots benefit from their region’s tourism industry.
