Carrier bag charges at a Lynn supermarket have raised more than £2,000 for a town children’s home.

Staff at Sainsbury’s town centre branch have now presented a cheque for £2,171.31 to representatives of the Rosedale home, which is run by the children’s charity Break.

The donation, which was presented at the Vancouver Centre branch last Friday, is on top of a further £1,055 the store raised when the home was its charity of the year.

Store manager Alan Bedwell said: “We are pleased to see this money going towards such a good cause - helping youngsters in our community. It is amazing to think the amount of carrier bags we must have sold to raise such an amount.”
