Royal baby celebration in store

SUPERMARKET staff and customers can celebrate the arrival of the Royal baby with activities and giveaways in store this weekend.

Colleagues at Sainsbury’s Middle Warren say they will have some “fantastic” offers on baby items and goodies in the store, in Mulberry Rise, on Saturday from 1pm to mark the occasion.

A three-tier baby cake, courtesy of Pitter Patter Baby Cakes, will also be getting raffled during the day.

Tracie Bestford, from the store, said: “The whole country is celebrating the safe arrival of the little Prince so we decided to hold an event in store.

“Hopefully we will get an excellent turn-out on Saturday from people who want to celebrate the Royal birth with us.”

Customers will also get a taste of the summer as fresh British strawberries and some fizz will be handed out during the day.

All of the money raised on the day will go to Miles for Men, the store’s charity partner this year.

The supermarket will be represented at this year’s Miles for Men race on Sunday.

Team leader David Clark and store manager Steve Emmerson are both running in the Hartlepool race and helping to raise cash to fight cancer.
