Sainsbury's Nine Elms Searching For New Local Charity Partner

Customers get to vote on who it will be

Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year scheme is back for the tenth year and the Sainsbury’s Nine Elms store is calling for local charities to nominate themselves to be its next flagship local charity partner.

At the end of May, the store shortlisted three charities to go to customers to vote.

The three chosen charities for 2018 are:

1 - Battersea Dogs & Cats Home (Charity Number 206394)

2 - Action For Children (Charity Number 1097940)

3 - Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (Charity Number 286669)

The winning charity will receive a year of support from the store, which includes fundraising and awareness raising. Customers can vote between 11 – 24 June in stores and online.

Last year, Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year scheme raised over £1.2 million, providing support to charities across the UK.

Rav Singh, Store Manager at Sainsbury’s Nine Elms, said, “There are so many fantastic charities in the local area which do brilliant work in our community. We’ve had a great year working in partnerships with Tooting and Balham Sea Cadets and we’re excited to be offering a new charity the chance to receive support from our customers and colleagues.”
