Store may help your local cause
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.
