Charitable donations by Sainsburys stores across the country

Sainsbury’s has been doing good charity work over the last few weeks, raising thousands of pounds in stores to help out a variety of causes.
Falmouth Hospital will be able to treat their young patients with some distracting technology thanks to their local Sainsburys store.
The minor injuries ward was presented with a Samsung Galaxy Tab and a LeapPad children’s tablet, along with a range of accessories to help distract patients and make their hospital stay more enjoyable.
A staff member, Sarah MacQueen, of Sainsbury’s which, through donations from customers and staff, managed to collect enough money to spend on the devices, said: “After seeing how modern technology can be used to distract frightened patients and make their experience better, especially in the case of children, I thought it would be great to have something in the department.”
In Wolverhampton, a Sainsbury’s store is closing after 26 years of business, to merge with the retailer’s long awaited new £60m store which has been opened up in the city centre, on Raglan Street.
As the old store closed, the staff donated the funds to a variety of organisations including the Guide Dogs charity, PDSA the animal charity, and Promise Dreams, totalling over £2,000 in all.
It is uplifting to know that with all the market share trouble and drops in sales that the main four supermarkets are suffering currently, the staff are still able to put the effort in and raise money for these good causes.
