Supermarket Sainsbury's is inviting customers and colleagues to nominate their favourite local charity at their local store. The selected charities will receive a year's worth of fundraising and awareness raising support from that store.
This is the fourth year that Sainsbury's has been running its local charity scheme. It operates across the country at Sainsbury stores, depots and support centres. Thousands of charities have benefited so far from over £4 million raised by staff and customers.
How to nominate a local charity
Nominations are open from 9 to 23 May 2012. A nomination box and forms should be available at the front of every main and convenience Sainsbury's store, as well as in their depots and support centres. Complete the form and post it in the box.
Local staff at each store will then shortlist three charities that they think best meet the needs of the local community. These three then get the opportunity to talk to Sainsbury's staff in the store about the charity and its work. One charity from the three will then be chosen.
