Customers at Sainsbury’s in Dunstable Road, Luton will shortly have the chance to vote for the store’s new Local Charity Partner. Voting takes place in store from May 28 to June 8, while customers can also vote online from May 28 by going to www.sainsburys.co.uk/localcharity.
A shortlist of nominations will be drawn up after the closing date and the store’s colleagues will then invite the three charities that they feel best fit the needs of the community into store to talk about how Sainsbury’s can support them.
The chosen charity will be selected based on the reasons given and the store will announce their chosen charity in July. Store manager Mark Jacklin said: “We’re looking forward to supporting a charity which touches many of our customers’ and colleagues’ hearts.
“The scheme gives us the chance to make a real difference to important causes in the community and we hope our customers get behind this year’s voting stage and nominate their favourite local charity.”
