East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and Stepping Stones benefit from Norwich Tesco store’s revamp
A Norwich supermarket has celebrated the unveiling of its revamped store with an in-store celebration and a double charity donation.
Danielle Gravestock, Norfolk fundraiser from East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) and Sue Sadler from the Stepping Stones Project were the guests of honour at the Tesco Metro, in Guildhall Hill.
Both charities accepted a �750 donation from store manager, Simon Nellis, before cutting a ribbon declaring the store, on Guildhall Hill, officially re-launched.
Sue from Stepping Stones, said: 'We would like to thank Tesco for this very kind donation. As a charity we provide life skills training for young adults with learning disabilities and this donation will go towards helping us to continue this service.'
Danielle added: 'This year we need to raise around �4.8m from public donations to deliver our services. This amounts to more than �13,000 a day, every day of the year.
'This wonderful donation will help EACH to support families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex, and Suffolk.'
