Following a year working with Hearing Dogs for the Deaf the Sainsbury's store in Great Yarmouth has raised £3490.65 for the charity.

The charity was chosen by customers and staff in 2016 and has received support from the store for the past year including fundraising and raising awareness for the charity.

Customers and colleagues took part in a range of activities to raise money for the charity.

The money raised will be used to sponsor a Hearing Dog throughout its working life.

At the end of June customers were given the chance to vote in store and online for the store's new charity partner, with Hearing Dogs for the Deaf receiving the most votes for the second year running.
