From Sainbsury's Nine Elms Temp Store
Sainsbury’s Nine Elms Temp Store has announced that Trinity Hospice will receive a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness support from the store. Trinity provides skilled, compassionate end-of-life care to individuals as well as support for families, friends and carers.
The retailer’s Local Charity scheme is now in its sixth year and gives customers the chance to vote for their favourite local charity to be considered to receive a year’s worth of support from their Sainsbury’s store. The scheme has raised over £6 million to support local charities since 2009.
Customers had a huge say in this year’s announcement and voted in-store and online between 28th May and 8th June. The store colleagues then decided that Trinity Hospice were the best charity for them to work with to make a real difference.
Ben Morrison (Corporate Fundraiser) from Trinity Hospice said: “We know the success that the Local Charity partnership has bought to many charities in Wandsworth/Lambeth area, so when we received the news, we were thrilled. We hope the partnership will help raise awareness of our cause to the store’s customers and will help us develop the important service we provide to the community”.
Sainsbury’s Andy Robins Store Manager said: “We’ve had a great response from our customers this year, both through in-store and online votes. We’re delighted to have chosen a charity, which touched many of our colleagues’ hearts. We will now be working closely with the charity to ensure they really benefit from being our Local Charity for the next 12 months”.
