The last bag of Pic N Mix

The 800g bag of sugary goodness was sold off by the former manager of Woolies Petts Wood branch, Ed Adams, who snapped it up just before he pulled down the shutters on the store for the last time. The proceeds of the sale will go to the Retail Trust Helpline, described by the vendor as "a lifeline for retail workers and their families during these difficult times". ®
