A supermarket in Thorpe St Andrew is to raise money for a eating disorder charity this year.
Sainsbury’s, on Pound Lane, has announced it will be supporting Beat to help fund the charity’s helpline and services.
Beat held a fundraising and awareness weekend at the store over the weekend of August 4.
The Pound Lane store has had great success in supporting previous local charities and last year raised £2,627 for the East Anglia Children Hospice (EACH).
EACH used the money in support of their new proposed premises for their The Nook Appeal.
Andrea Auburn, community fundraising officer from Beat said: “We know the success that the local charity partnership has brought to many charities, so when we received the recent phone-call to tell us the news, we were thrilled.
“The exposure and support is going to be massively beneficial to our charity.”
