ALL the Cool Stuff in Fordingbridge has been shortlisted in the Brilliance in Business Awards.

It is in the running for the Hampshire County Council Award for Contribution to the New Forest Community.

The shop has raised hundreds of pounds for charity by hosting Star Wars family events.

Dave Tree, of All the Cool Stuff, said: “It’s a real honour to be nominated, The New Forest Brilliance in Business Awards celebrate and recognise the achievements and ethics of businesses within the New Forest area, so to be considered worthy of the shortlisting within the Contribution To The New Forest Community award is already a win in my book.”

Judging will take place throughout October. A presentation evening will be held at Careys Manor, Brockenhurst on November 29.
