Spalding store's support for Macmillan




Generous customers have helped staff at Sainsbury's Spalding, raise £8,532.65 for Macmillan. The money was raised in the Holland Market store through four weekend collections and bucket collections on the tills over the 12 month period.

Julie Ward, of Sainsbury's Spalding said: "Last year we asked for nominations for our charity partner for 2018-19 and then customers were asked to vote in-store and online to select which one of the three the store should support. Macmillan received the most votes so they became our charity partner - it's a fantastic cause.

"We are delighted to have raised so much money through the four weekend collections and collecting buckets and I'd like to thank customers and staff for their support.
