Sainsbury's Edenthorpe, Doncaster has announced that CLIC Sargent will be its new local charity and will receive a year's worth of fundraising and awareness support.
The Local Charity scheme is now in its sixth year and gives customers the chance to vote for their favourite local charity to receive a year’s worth of support from their Sainsbury’s store. The scheme has raised over £6 million to support local charities since 2009.
Customers had a huge say in this year’s announcement and voted in-store and online between 28 May and 8 June. The store colleagues then decided that CLIC Sargent were the best charity for them to work with to make a real difference.
Sainsbury’s Edenthorpe Store Manager said: “We’ve had a great response from our customers this year, both through in-store and online votes. We’re delighted to have chosen a charity which touched many of our colleagues’ hearts."
We will be working closely with the charity to ensure they benefit from being our local charity.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Stephen Jackett said: “We know the success that the local charity partnership has bought to many charities in Doncaster, so when we received the news, we were thrilled.
“We hope the partnership will help raise awareness of our cause to the store’s customers and will help us develop the important service we provide to the community.”
