Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets Raise Over £1300

By bag packing at Sainsbury's Nine Elms

Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets provided a helping hand at the checkouts in Sainsbury's Nine Elms Point to raise money for their group. On Saturday October 1st and 2nd the cadets helped with bag packing and customers were then able to choose to make a donation.

All money raised will be going to the Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets to be used for a new gallery that will allow the cadets to gain more catering qualification within the unit and for the juniors to gain modules.

The Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets, who are based in Mellison Road, have been supported by Sainsbury's Nine Elms Point for years, by allowing the charity to have awareness stands, collections days and bag packing in store.

Jessica Burton from Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets, who was taking part in the bag-packing, said, "We was really looking forward to helping pack checkout customer's shopping and now we would like to take the opportunity to thank Sainsbury's for their support and helping to raise awareness of our Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets."

Store Manager Andy Robins added, "It's always helpful to have support during the busy summer holidays, so we're delighted to invite Tooting & Balham Sea Cadets to help us out and we hope the day helps to raise awareness of our partnership with them."
