SAINSBURY’S Lo­cal Charity of the Year scheme is back for the tenth year and the Crosby store is call­ing for lo­cal char­i­ties to nom­i­nate them­selves to be its next flag­ship lo­cal part­ner.

At the end of May, it will short­list three char­i­ties to be put to cus­tomers to vote.

Cus­tomers can vote be­tween June 11-24 in stores and on­line.

The win­ner will then re­ceive a year of sup­port from the store, which in­cludes fundrais­ing and aware­ness rais­ing.

Last year, Sainsbury’s Lo­cal Charity of the Year scheme raised over £1.2m, pro­vid­ing sup­port to char­i­ties across the UK.

Crosby store man­ager Ni­cola Thomas said: “We have had a great year work­ing in part­ner­ships with Alzheimer’s Re­search and we’re ex­cited to be of­fer­ing a new charity the chance to re­ceive sup­port from our cus­tomers and col­leagues.”

The scheme is open to any UK-regis­tered charity. Nominations close on May 29 and the short­listed char­i­ties will be an­nounced in June.
