People are invited to get their votes in and help Sainsbury’s Hampden Park support a new local charity for a year.
The store is looking for a new local charity partner. Customers can vote for their favourite local charity between now and June 8. The chosen charity will be announced in July and will receive a year’s worth of support.
Sainsbury’s Hampden Park calls on customers to cast their votes and help a registered local charity receive a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness support. Customers will be able to vote for their favourite local charity either instore or by visiting www.sainsburys.co.uk/loc alcharity.
The retailer’s Local Charity scheme is now in its sixth year.
After voting closes, a shortlist of nominations will be drawn up and the colleagues will then invite the three charities that they feel best fit the needs of the community into the store to talk about how Sainsbury’s can support them. The chosen charity will be selected based on the reasons given and the store will announce their chosen charity in July.
Local charities that have benefited from the scheme in previous years at Sainsbury’s, Hampden Park include Eastbourne Ambulance Community First Responders and Care for the Carers.
Store manager Tony Gagola said: “We’re looking forward to supporting a local charity which touches many of our customers’ and colleagues’ hearts. The scheme gives us the chance to make a real difference to important causes in the community and we hope our customers get behind this year’s voting stage and nominate their favourite local charity now onwards.”
Sainsburys say their stores generate local wealth, provide employment and use local suppliers.
Customers can fill out the nomination form in the store and post it in the box or email: http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/localcharity
