Paralympics trip enjoyed by Thorpe St Andrew Sainsbury’s staff

Seven staff members from the Thorpe St Andrew Sainsbury's supermarket enjoyed a trip to the Paralympics on Monday.

As Sainsbury's are one of the main sponsors of the Paralympics, staff from around the country were offered the opportunity to go to the Olympic Park on the same day.

The lucky ones chosen to go from the Pound Lane store were Sue Hewitt, Andy Stewardson, Sue Lynn, Dani Street, Carina Roswell, Gillian Bartram and Will Dorset.

Ms Lynn said: 'We put forward why we would like to go along to the Paralympics and were nominated via our staff council.

'We had a super day watching the women's wheelchair basketball between Germany and Mexico. We has a super time visiting other events during our day there and the atmosphere was amazing.
