Staff from Sainsbury’s Hardwick Road store in Lynn have donated crockery to help towards setting up a kitchen area at the Bridge for Heroes charity at its South Clough Lane premises in the town.
Karen Abbott from the store café and PR ambassador Lisa Carter-Hall delivered the crockery to Sharon Marsden from Bridge for Heroes, who was delighted with the donation.
Sharon said “We already have some crockery, but we are also looking to put together starter packs for our new single beneficiaries who are just out of the services and setting up their first homes.”
Bridge for Heroes was shortlisted to be the store’s Local Charity Partner, but was just beaten by vote by Little Discoverers.
“It was a very close vote between the two charities and when the café told me about the crockery, colleagues immediately wanted to donate it to Bridge for Heroes.” Lisa said.
The Hardwick Road Store is very passionate about helping the Forces within the local area, being so close to RAF Marham, and helping to support the Royal British Legion. On Saturday, November 1, the store will be holding its second Military Day to help raise funds for the RBL Poppy Appeal.
