Colleagues at Sainsbury’s Trinity Walk are celebrating after raising £13,347 for Red Nose Day. In the 20th year of Sainsbury’s and Comic Relief being official partners, the team took part in a variety of special fundraising events during the weeks leading up to Red Nose Day’s big finale, which took place on Friday 15th March.
The store’s main activity was a Design a Red Nose Competition in partnership with St Austin’s Academy. The Winners, pictured above, attended Sainsbury’s store on Red Nose Day to show off their entries.
In addition the store offered a range of Red Nose Day merchandise, giving customers the chance to make a donation while they shopped.
Phil Butterfield, Store Manager at Sainsbury’s Trinity Walk, said: “Red Nose Day is a fantastic opportunity for us to come together with the local community to raise as much money as possible for a great cause. We always enjoy coming up with lots of fun and creative activities to get everyone involved. I’m really proud that our store has been able to contribute to the impressive figure donated from Sainsbury’s to Comic Relief and we’d like to thank our colleagues and customers in the Wakefield area for their support.”
