Sainsbury’s Cheadle has raised a bumper £4,000 for Stockport charity Beechwood Cancer Care Centre.
The group was chosen by customers and colleagues in 2016 and received support from the store for the past year including fundraising and awareness raising.
Customers and colleagues took part in a range of activities to raise money for the charity including the big bike ride and card sales. The money raised will be used to Support the local community.
Michael Broadhurst, store manager at Sainsbury’s Cheadle, said: “We’ve really enjoyed working with Beechwood over the past 12 months.
“Our customers and colleagues worked really hard to help raise vital funds for the charity and we’re really proud with everything we’ve achieved.”
Angela Gray, Beechwood’s fundraising manager, added: “We’d like to thank the Sainsbury’s customers and colleagues in Cheadle for their support over the past year.
“It has made such a difference to the charity and we’re extremely grateful for the donations and awareness we’ve been able to raise.”
At the end of June, customers were given the chance to vote in store and online for the store’s new charity partner with Supportdogs.org.uk receiving the most votes.
The Local Charity scheme is now entering its ninth year and has raised over £13m to support local charities since 2009.
