Sainsbury’s in Bury Park Luton has announced that Happy Days Children’s Charity will receive a year’s worth of fundraising and awareness support.
The charity, who support disadvantaged children experience the best of what life has to offer, will be the new Local Charity for the Sainsbury’s store. To celebrate the announcement, a launch day will be taking place at the store on Friday (August 8) with representatives from Happy Days on hand to greet customers throughout the day.
The retailer’s Local Charity scheme is now in its sixth year and gives customers the chance to vote for their favourite cause to receive a year’s worth of support from their supermarket. The scheme has raised over £6 million to support local charities since 2009.
Customers had a huge say in this year’s choice and voted in-store and online between May 28 and June 8.
Store manager, Mark Jacklin said: “We’ve had a great response from our customers this year, both through in-store and online votes. We’re delighted to have chosen a charity which touched many of our colleagues’ hearts.
“We will now be working closely with the charity to ensure they really benefit from being our Local Charity for the next 12 months”.
