Sainsbury’s store appeals for charity nominations

PUBLISHED: 11:59 23 May 2018 | UPDATED: 11:59 23 May 2018

Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year scheme is back for the tenth year and the Great Yarmouth store is calling for local charities to nominate themselves to be its next flagship charity partner.

At the end of May, the store will shortlist three charities to go to customers to vote. The winning charity will then receive a year of support from the store, which includes fundraising and awareness raising.

Rebecca Davis, store manager, said: “There are so many fantastic charities in the local area which do brilliant work in our community. We’ve had a great two years working in partnerships with Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and we’re excited to be offering a new charity the chance to receive support from our customers and colleagues.”

Nominations close on May 29 and the shortlisted charities will be announced in June.
