A TOWN charity has been boosted thanks to kind supermarket staff who have donated £1,250.
The generous workers at the five Nisa local convenience stores in Hartlepool all agreed that Hartlepool & District Hospice should benefit from the company’s Making a Difference Locally scheme.
The stores, in Catcote Road, Owton Manor Lane, King Oswy Drive, Oxford Road and Wynyard Road then each donated £250 from the sales of carrier bags.
Jean Ashley, manager of the Catcote Road store, said: “We chose the hospice because as well as being a very worthy cause it is also a town charity.
“Lots of our staff have had experience at one time or another of the services provided by the hospice.”
Carol Sennett, corporate fundraiser at the Wells Avenue-based hospice, added: “I would like to thank all of the Nisa staff for choosing to support the hospice.
“These donations will go directly towards caring for our patients.
“It is really good to know that the work the hospice does for the local communities of Hartlepool and East Durham has been the inspiration for this.
“On behalf of our patients and their families I would like to say a huge thanks.”
