Sainsbury’s staff to the rescue for cats
A year of fundraising at the Sainsbury’s store in Oxney Road saw almost £9,000 being collected for Peterborough Cats Rescue group. PCR was nominated by customers at the store as the charity of the year for 2016/17.
Collection buckets were placed at the checkouts throughout the year, and regular in-store tombolas were held.
When the fundraising was over, store manager Karl Cunningham presented a cheque for £8,783.99 to the team from PCR.
A PCR spokesman said: “Sadly we were unsuccessful in our bid to renew for 2017/18, but we had a great time working with Sainsbury’s staff. We’d like to thank them for all their time and effort.”
The store’s new charity is Macmillan Cancer Support.
