GENEROUS supermarket staff are appealing to people to help them find a charity to support for the next year.
The Sainsbury’s Middle Warren store on Hartlepool’s Bishop Cuthbert estate has raised an impressive £3,000 for Hartlepool & District Hospice over the last 12 months thanks to the excellent support of their customers.
But now bosses are on the lookout for a local charity to support over the coming year, and are urging residents to nominate worthy causes.
Steve Emmerson, manager of the store, said: “Our work with previous local charity partners over the years has been really successful in letting our customers have their say.
“We hope our customers can take the time to vote in the coming weeks and give a local charity that’s close to their hearts the chance for us to support them.”
People can vote for the next charity for the store to support by picking up a nomination form from the store or by filling in an online form.
Once all of the nominations are in, bosses will then decide which charity will receive the boost of a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness support from the store’s colleagues and customers.
Carol Sennett, hospice fundraiser, said: “Working with Sainsbury’s Middle Warren over the last 12 months has made such a difference to our cause, we’ve raised a fantastic amount so it’s a big thanks from everyone at the hospice.”
Online nomination forms can be found by visiting www.sainsburys.co.uk/localcharity. People can also email their nominations to Local.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winning charity will be announced next month.
