Since being nominated as Sainsbury’s Local Charity Partner last year, we have been working closely with staff on a number of fundraising and awareness activities; this week the final amount raised was confirmed as a brilliant £6,000.
The Cannock store has hosted information stands to highlight the effects of lupus and the work of the charity along with bag packing events where volunteers from the Trust have been able to help customers whilst sharing knowledge about the charity. In store, the staff have been busy supporting us too as departments were challenged to raise funds. The checkouts have been host to the Hibbs Lupus Trust collection buckets whilst the information desk has offered our jute shopping bags for sale. As well as the opportunity to raise funds, an information board was maintained by the staff at the store which helped promote other events held by the Trust.
We are incredibly grateful to the management team and staff Sainsbury’s Cannock for their commitment and effort in supporting us.
We’d also like to pay a special tribute to the customers at the Cannock Store for their support and generosity.
The donation received will be used towards purchasing equipment for use at Cannock and Stafford hospitals to aid the early diagnosis of lupus and other connective tissues diseases.
