Sainsbury’s staff to the res­cue for cats

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR NEWS -

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.
