Sainsbury’s Worksop has announced that Bassetlaw Hospice has been voted by its customers as the store’s next local charity to be the beneficiary’s of their successful partnership scheme.
Bassetlaw Hospice, who provides specialist care for patients who have been diagnosed with cancer or a progressive long-term condition, will receive a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness support from the store.
The store’s Local Charity scheme has helped raise over £6 million for other Bassetlaw-based charities since 2009.
To celebrate the announcement, a launch day will be taking place at the store on 6th and 7th September.
Customers and colleagues are urged to bring in their unwanted clothes and toys to be donated to the two charity shops to help their supply.
Ian Hall, from Bassetlaw Hospice, said: “We know the success that the Local Charity partnership has bought to many charities in Bassetlaw, so when we received the recent phone call to tell us the news, we were thrilled. We hope the partnership will help raise awareness of our cause to the store’s customers and will help us develop the important service we provide to the community.”
