Staff and SSAFA volunteers at the Pound Lane Sainsbury’s helped raise the money on Saturday, September 1 when they donned back to school fancy dress, held a tombola and did a bag pack and collection in the store

Sue Lynn, charity champion at Sainsbury’s Pound Lane store, said they raised £517.16 from the day, bringing their current fundraising total for the charity to £3,139.99.

She said the store wanted to say a big thank you to all the customer and volunteers that have helped to raise the funds.
