CUSTOMER of the Rainbow Foodstore in Bradwell have raised �251.11 for Smart Kids OK, the dedicated play centre for children with autistic disorders.
The Co-op's Pick up a Penny campaign began in May as a local initiative to raise money for the charity. Customers were urged not to throw away till receipts but place them in a collection box and for every receipt collected the foodstore donated one penny to the centre.
Smart Kids OK centre manager Jacky Porter said: “I would like to thank the Co-op for choosing to support us and all the customers who donated their receipts. The money will be used to fund activities to keep the children entertained over the half-term break and will include many Halloween surprises too.”
Senior team trainer at the Rainbow Foodstore, Dawn Howelll said: “Pick Up a Penny has been a huge success and I thank our customers for that. Working to support the local community is something we believe very strongly in and I am pleased the money raised will be put to good use.”
