And donates refreshments to local Big Lunch Event
Sainsbury's Nine Elms Point, which opens this August, donated water, drinks, food and tableware for the Big Lunch Event in Ascalon Street. The eat-out was hosted by the Rose Community Centre.
Last year 100 people came to the Big Lunch family fun day and this year it was even bigger with over 100 people attending. As well as offering guests the chance to make new friends with people of all ages, The Big Lunch is also being used as a launch pad for the Nine Elms area's contribution to a nationwide-drive to get more people dancing.
Sainsbury's Nine Elms Point Store Manager Andy Robins said, "Our new store will be at the heart of the local community and it is important that we do as much as we can to support it. Glenn and the team he works with were extremly pleased with the food and drink we donated for the local community event."
Glenn Burnell from Wandsworth Council, who organised the Big Lunch event said, "I am delighted that the day was a great success, we had well over 100 residents attend and there was great community spirit and fun had by all. I would like to thank the new local Sainsbury's Nine Elms Store for their kind help and support they have shown to the local community, in providing refreshments and treats for all. I was delighted that the new Store Manager Andy and some of his colleagues took the time to pop down and join us. There is a real buzz by local residents about the opening of their new Sainsbury's store on 24 August, this will be a fantastic new facility for local residents''
