Sainsbury's Charity of the Year

Posted: Tue, 15 May 2018 13:47 by Alison Grantham

Sainsbury's Weedon Road launches search for new local charity partner for 2018

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

At the end of May, the store will shortlist three charities to go to customers to vote for. The winning charity will then receive a year of support from the store, which includes fundraising and awareness raising. Customers can vote between 11 – 24June in stores and online.

Last year, Sainsbury's Local Charity of the Year scheme raised over £1.2 million, providing support to charities across the UK.

James Little, Store Manager at Sainsbury's Weedon Road, said: "There are so many fantastic charities in the local area which do brilliant work in our community. We've had a great year working in partnership with The Lewis Foundation and we're excited to be offering a new charity the chance to receive support from our customers and colleagues."

The scheme is open to any UK registered charity, so anyone who works for a charity, or would like to encourage a local charity to apply can collect a form from the store. Nominations close on 29 May and the shortlisted charities will be announced in June.
