A supermarket in Thorpe St Andrew has donated more than £3,000 to a charity supporting those affected by eating disorders.
Sainsbury's donation marked the end of a charity partnership with Beat which began in June 2017.
Over the past 12 months, the store, on Pound Lane, invited Beat to hold awareness and fundraising days at the supermarket.
The store also organised raffles and music nights in support of the charity.
Andrea Auburn, community fundraising officer for Beat, said 'A huge thank you to the staff and customers at Sainsbury's Pound Lane who have made this partnership so wonderful.
