Supermarket hands over £11,998.12 raised by colleagues and customers

Sainsbury’s Trinity Walk has raised over £10,000 for Wakefield Trinity Community Trust, as part of the Local Charity of the Year scheme.

The total of £11,998.12 was announced as the two year association as local charity partner drew to a close at the end of May.

The money raised will be used to fund their work in the local community, to utilise the power of Sport to engage with people who are disadvantaged or deprived and divert them towards more healthy, fulfilling and positive lifestyles.

Fundraising activities during the last two years have included bag packs and bucket collections. The fundraising efforts were boosted by a payment of £1300 from the sale of carrier bags.

Craig Shepherd, General Manager for Wakefield Trinity Community Trust said: “The continued support over the last two years from Sainsbury’s Trinity Walk has been phenomenal.

“We cannot thank the staff and shoppers for raising such an amazing amount of money. 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.

Store Manager Phil Butterfield said: “I’m very proud of the £11,998.12 we have raised for a great cause.

“I would like to say a big thank you to all the colleagues and customers who have given so generously throughout the last two years”
