Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Asda su­per­mar­ket in Hayes is do­nat­ing £1,000 to Age UK Hilling­don af­ter the char­ity was nom­i­nated by res­i­dents.

The store asked shop­pers and lo­cals to nom­i­nate a char­ity to re­ceive a financial boost in the run-up to Christ­mas.

Age UK Hilling­don pro­vides ser­vices to im­prove later life for older res­i­dents of the bor­ough.

The en­tries were judged by store man­ager Lee Ran­dall, who said: “We re­ceived many touch­ing nom­i­na­tions for a num­ber of fan­tas­tic causes, but Age UK Hil­lling­don re­ally stood out to us.

“Through this cam­paign we’ve found out about some of the great work go­ing on in Hayes, which we can also help sup­port through our com­mu­nity life ini­tia­tive in­store.”

Les­ley McGinty, man­ager in­come gen­er­a­tion and communications at Age UK Hilling­don, said: “Ev­ery­one at Age UK Hilling­don is de­lighted to have been cho­sen to re­ceive this £1,000 do­na­tion. Un­for­tu­nately fund­ing for our weekly group that meet, cook

for and dine at our Town­field Cen­tre in Hayes is com­ing to an end.

“We will use this fan­tas­tic do­na­tion from Asda Hayes to­wards an ex­ten­sion of the weekly café – a place to come to have fun, eat and be happy for peo­ple who are par­tic­u­larly vul­ner­a­ble and iso­lated.”
