Supermarket makes grand donation
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.”
