Thorpe St Andrew Sainsbury’s supermarket is looking for a new charity to support
Charities in Thorpe St Andrew are in with a chance of receiving a year's worth of fundraising support from the local Sainsbury's supermarket.
The Pound Lane store's Local Charity Partner scheme is now in it's fourth year and looking for a charity to provide help and support to from Wednesday, June 20.
Customers and staff are being asked to put forward charities which are important to them and from tomorrow through to Wednesday, May 23, customers will be able to vote for their choice in-store.
A shortlist will be drawn up after the closing date and the three charities the store's staff feel best fit the needs of the community in to the store to talk about how Sainsbury's can support them.
Last year, the store's local charity partner was the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) and during the year's worth of fundraising over �6,250 was raised.
